A heel spur refers to the bony spur that forms on the base of the heel around the point where the plantar fascia attaches. The heel spur is generally not the source of pain; that is caused by micro tears along the plantar fascia that attach in this area. These micro tears bleed and become sore. Heel spurs are commonly referred to by medical practitioners; however, it is really the fascial attachment that causes the pain, and therefore the plantar fasciitis that is the cause of the heel spurs commonly referred to as heel spurs.
If it is actually the heel spur that is sore, then you may need to consider surgery; however, this condition is rare.
Heel Spurs Treatment
The best way to treat heel spurs is to address the underlying cause which is the level of misalignment the bones of your feet. The alignment of your joints will affect the way you stand and walk. Feet that are out of alignment will cause compensation through the soft tissues which leads to pain and inflammation.
The way we treat the underlying cause is by correcting this misalignment of your joints through a technique called foot mobilisation therapy. That corrects the alignment joints through a gentle hands on technique and then we reinforce this position by strengthening the muscles that surround the relevant joints. The great news is that this change is long term and you don’t have to change your shoes, or activity. Our unique approach to podiatry treats heel spurs without the use of orthotics by using our Foot Mobilisation Therapy technique.
