Heel Spurs Treatment in Adelaide

Heel spurs occur due to repetitive stress on the soft tissue structures that attach to the heel bone, specifically the plantar fascia.

Symptoms Associated with Heel spur

A heel spur is a calcium growth at the bottom of the heel, visible on X-ray as a small hook. It’s important to note that pain from a heel spur is often attributed to plantar fasciitis, and the two conditions are frequently confused. Sometimes, heel spurs may be asymptomatic and cause no pain. However, the calcium deposits can irritate the surrounding tissue, leading to pain and discomfort, especially during activities like walking or running.

Heel spurs can develop due to factors such as gait abnormalities, sports activities, footwear choices, structural foot issues, or overuse injuries. At Keep Me Walking Podiatry in Adelaide, we offer comprehensive assessments to accurately diagnose and treat heel spurs. Our treatments aim to alleviate symptoms like ache or shooting pain during walking, preventing further complications such as calluses if left untreated.
