Heel spurs and heel pain explained (Plantar Fasciitis)




Optimal Foot Health is one of the fundamental aspects of overall health and well-being. A knowledge of the various bones, ligaments and muscles of your feet is something that you should definitely possess, as the same will provide you with deeper in-sights on various foot ailments like Heel Spurs and Heel Pain, and the overall condition of Plantar Fasciitis- its symptoms, prevention and cure.




Calcaneal Spur

Before we talk about calcaneal spur, we must first understand the nuances of the Calcaneus. The Calcaneus is a bone that is located at the base of the foot, and it is also known as the Heel Bone.

When the Calcaneus is routinely subjected to pressure, be it from body weight as in the case of obese or flat-footed people or from excessive mechanical pressure like in the case of athletes, runners or people who have a very rigorous schedule, a deformity in the form of a spur-like calcium deposition automatically gets formed in the Calcaneus, and it is known as Calcaneal Spur.
