When Is Heel Pain a Symptom of Heel Spurs?

The truth of the matter is heel spurs very rarely cause heel pain. Most heel pain is caused by a ligament in the bottom of the foot called the plantar fascia. Plantar fasciitis is very common and can be treated with stretching, shoe changes, orthotics (shoe inserts), braces, medication and sometimes cortisone injections. A quick consult from a podiatrist will confirm the diagnosis and within a few weeks the pain can be gone. Most people live with plantar fasciitis because they think it is normal for their feet to hurt. Remember foot pain is NEVER normal! A great resource on basic foot problems is the book written by Dr. Neuhaus, Healthy Feet 101: Healthy Feet are Happy Feet. You can request a copy of the book on the home page of www.neufoot.com.
