The Shape of Heel Spurs

Heel spurs are bony hooks that can form on the heel bone. They are essentially calcium deposits that may be caused by wearing significantly ill-fitting footwear. It is possible for heel spurs to cause pain. Heel spurs have an interesting shape. They come to almost a pointy end at the tip of the heel spur. This is why the heel spur is said to resemble a kind of hook shape. The hook points towards the plantar fascia in the foot and is relatively small in size compared to the heel bone. It is suggested that an individual who has heel spurs seek medical attention from a podiatrist if the heel spur is causing significant pain or is inhibiting or preventing motion such as walking. Contact a podiatrist today and schedule an appointment if you are struggling with heel spurs. 


 

Heel spurs can be incredibly painful and sometimes may make you unable to participate in physical activities. To get medical care for your heel spurs, contact one of our doctors from Favor Foot Ankle Leg & Wound Center. Our doctors will do everything possible to treat your condition.

Heels Spurs

Heel spurs are formed by calcium deposits on the back of the foot where the heel is. This can also be caused by small fragments of bone breaking off one section of the foot, attaching onto the back of the foot. Heel spurs can also be bone growth on the back of the foot and may grow in the direction of the arch of the foot.

Older individuals usually suffer from heel spurs and pain sometimes intensifies with age. One of the main condition's spurs are related to is plantar fasciitis.

Pain

The pain associated with spurs is often because of weight placed on the feet. When someone is walking, their entire weight is concentrated on the feet. Bone spurs then have the tendency to affect other bones and tissues around the foot. As the pain continues, the feet will become tender and sensitive over time.
