Heel spurs are bony prominences made up of calcium deposits either on the bottom or on the back of the heel, where the plantar fascia and Achilles tendon insert into the heel bone respectively.
Heel spurs are not the cause of heel pain but rather the consequence of the pulling and tearing of the Plantar Fascia or Achilles tendon as they insert into the heel. When both of these soft tissue structures are taut, the body compensates by depositing calcium to prevent detachment of the tendon and ligament from the heel bone.
To treat heel spur pain, you must treat the origin of the problem which is either Achilles tendonitis or plantar fasciitis. Dr. Miguel Cunha and his team strive to provide the best heel spur treatments New York has to offer.
