Heel Spurs: Advanced Relief at Foot & Ankle Specialists of Delray

Overview of Heel Pain and Heel Spurs
Heel pain, often caused by heel spurs, is a widespread issue that can significantly affect daily activities and quality of life. Heel spurs are bony growths on the heel bone, often developing alongside conditions like plantar fasciitis, leading to pain and discomfort.

Causes and Types
Heel spurs and associated pain usually result from repetitive stress and strain on the foot. Contributing factors include walking gait abnormalities, poorly fitted shoes, excess weight, and age-related wear and tear. The pain can be sharp and intense or a dull ache, often pronounced in the morning or after prolonged periods of rest.

Typical symptoms include sharp pain in the heel, especially with the first steps in the morning, pain after standing for long periods, and tenderness at the heel. There might also be swelling and inflammation in more severe cases.
