Best Supports For Heel Spurs

HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT FROM HEEL SPURS?

A heel spur arises when a calcium deposit causes a bony protrusion to occur at the base of the heel bone. This is commonly associated with plantar fasciitis and usually occurs following many months of repetitive loading and stretching of the structures of the foot. People whose physical activity involves lots of running or jumping are more likely to develop heel spurs. Those affected may experience intermittent or chronic pain especially in activities that require weight bearing on the feet (e.g. walking).

Bauerfeind’s high-quality insoles with medical-grade supports target the pain and discomfort from heel spurs to provide pain relief and protection. Made with high-quality polyurethane foam, our insoles offer optimal cushioning and flexibility to help you stand or walk around for longer.

 

HOW CAN I RELIEVE PAIN AND DISCOMFORT FROM HEEL SPURS?

  • Rest. Give your feet plenty of rest to help ease the stress and tension being put on it
  • Insoles and correct footwear. Orthotics and shoes with good support and cushioning will be highly beneficial
  • Allied Health Professional Treatment. Your physiotherapist or podiatrist may prescribe you with specific stretching and strengthening exercises
  • Anti-inflammatory medicines. Medications may be prescribed by your doctor to ease pain and inflammation
  • Severe or persistent should be investigated by your doctor or podiatrist.

    Play it safe: Consult a doctor if you experience unusually intense and persistent heel pain.

    WHAT ARE THE SYMPTOMS OF HEEL SPURS?


    Most heel spurs don’t have symptoms except for a ‘knife like’ pain in the heel, most commonly during the morning or when resting. When you touch the tender area you may feel a bony lump.
