Pain, inflammation, or even a bony protrusion at the front of the heel may be symptoms of a heel spur.
Heel spurs occur because of a calcium deposit that grows between your heel and arch.
Heel spurs may be diagnosed through the pain you feel in your heel or as a result of another foot condition altogether, such as plantar fasciitis. It may be difficult to diagnose this condition yourself.
You should rest your feet, evaluate your footwear, and see your doctor if you experience heel pain.
Heel spurs can be treated with cold compresses, medications, physical therapy, and possibly surgery.
