Heel Spurs Treatment
Addressing Plantar Fasciitis First:
It’s crucial to understand that heel spurs themselves are not usually the primary source of heel pain. Instead, it’s often the accompanying plantar fasciitis that causes discomfort. Therefore, our initial focus is on treating plantar fasciitis through non-invasive methods, including:
- Physical Therapy: A tailored physical therapy program can help alleviate strain on the plantar fascia. Stretching and strengthening exercises can promote healing and reduce pain.
- Orthotic Inserts: Custom orthotic inserts can provide better arch support and cushioning, reducing pressure on the heel and plantar fascia. These inserts can be designed to fit comfortably in your footwear.
- Footwear Recommendations: Properly fitted shoes with good arch support can make a significant difference. Our experts can provide recommendations on suitable footwear to support your feet.
- Anti-Inflammatory Medications: Over-the-counter or prescription medications can help reduce inflammation and alleviate pain. These medications may be recommended as part of your treatment plan.
- Surgical Intervention for Heel Spurs: In cases where conservative treatments do not provide adequate relief and the heel spur continues to cause severe pain, surgical removal may be considered. This procedure is known as plantar fascia release, and it aims to alleviate the tension on the plantar fascia and remove the spur. However, it’s essential to explore non-surgical options first, as surgery is typically reserved for extreme cases.
