Heel spurs are odd because people can have them for years without even knowing. On the other hand, they can be extremely painful. Usually, though, the reason for the pain is not the spur, but the injury it can cause to the soft tissues surrounding the spur. If you are feeling pain from a heel spur, Medi-Dyne can help reduce your discomfort so that you can continue to pursue your favorite activities.
Symptoms and Treatment
While it can be difficult to detect heel spurs, there are usually some common symptoms that people experience. These include inflammation of the heel or ankle and pain when you run, jog or walk. It is not, however, associated with sharp pain in the bottom of the heel after you have sat or rested for a while. If you are experiencing these symptoms, more than likely you have plantar fasciitis.
One of the best ways of dealing with pain from a heel spur is by putting a high-quality heel cup in your shoes. Our Tuli’s Polar Bear Gel Heel Cups act as shock absorbers, cradling the affected area of the foot while distributing pressure to the outside of the foot. We also carry the ProStretch Plus, which provides long-term healing by stretching and strengthening the bottom of your foot up to your ankle.
