Heel Spurs

What is it?

Commonly seen as a result of plantar fasciitis, a heel spur is a bony protrusion on the underside of the heel caused by a build up of calcium. Protrusion often causes a dull ache or sharp “pinprick” pain.

Why do I have it?

Occurs when calcium deposits build up on the underside of the heel. Risk factors include: prolonged standing, running or jogging on hard surfaces, poorly fitted/ worn out shoes, excess weight and arch abnormalities.

When does it hurt?

Weight-bearing activities such as standing, walking or running will worsen pain.

The Bracing Experts Advice:

A doughnut-shaped pad designed to go in shoes can help relieve pressure at the protrusion site. This can help manage pain during everyday activities such as standing and walking.
