Heel Spurs Treatment in Adelaide
Heel spurs occur due to repetitive stress on the soft tissue structures that attach to the heel bone, the plantar fascia.
A Heel spur is a calcium growth at the bottom of the heel. It looks like a small hook on an X-ray image. Commonly, pain from a heel spur may be plantar fasciitis, and they are often confused. It is often found that pain that is thought to be from a heel spur is plantar fasciitis.
Sometimes heel spurs may be asymptomatic and cause no pain. However, sometimes the calcium deposits can irritate the surrounding tissue leading to pain, sprain. Heel spurs can occur due to how you walk, the sports you play, the shoes you wear, structural abnormalities in the feet, or overuse injuries. At Keep Me Walking Podiatry in Adelaide, we can provide a comprehensive assessment to help diagnose and treat heel spurs which may feel like an ache or shooting pain while walking, and if it is left untreated it leads towards the callus.
