Heel spurs are tiny protruding calcium deposits that develop under the heel bone.They can be caused by repetitive activities such as running ,
Walking , jumping or standing for long periods of time.
They can also form in association with plantar fasciits, which is an inflammation of the plantar fascia ligament on the bottom of the foot.
When the plantar is taut and pulls on the heel bone , the bone releases calcium to try to heal itself, the excess calcium can sometimes form heel spurs.
The pain and discomfort from heel spurs is probably felt worst first thing in the morning when placing the feet on the ground after getting out of bed.
People suffering fom heel spurs describe the pain like walking on small sharpe stones or having the bottom of the heel pad pierced with a sharpe knife,it can be excruciating.
It left untreated heel spurs simply will not just go away.
I find greater results are achieved when plantar fasciitis – heel spurs are treated in the earlier stages
Dry needling combined with myofascial release of the calf muscles and plantar fascia(bottom of the foot)and stretching yield excellent results.
