Overview

A heel spur is a calcium deposit on the underside of the heel bone. On an X-ray, a heel spur protrusion can extend forward by as much as a half-inch. Without visible X-ray evidence, the condition is sometimes known as "heel spur syndrome."

Symptoms

Although heel spurs are often painless, they can cause heel pain. They are frequently associated with plantar fascitis, a painful inflammation of the fibrous band of connective tissue (plantar fascia) that runs along the bottom of the foot and connects the heel bone to the ball of the foot.

Treatment

Podiatrists recommend shoes with a raised heel, and solid cushioning or a heel cup to reduce pressure and impact. Also the recommend shoes with good arch support.
