Conditions We Treat

Heel Spurs Adelaide

A Heel Spur does not cause that horrible morning pain you may experience. However, in many circumstances it co-exists  with the pain inflicting condition: Plantar Fasciitis/Plantar Fasciosis. Plantar Fasciitis or Fasciosis affects the tendon/ligament-type structure in the sole of the foot that usually causes pain in the heel. The Plantar Fascia becomes scarred and degenerated where it attaches to the heel bone where the spur forms. The spur forms as the plantar fascia is pulling or tugging at the front part of the heel.

Following an X-Ray, many people find they have a heel spur present, but this is not the cause of heel pain. “Heel Spurs” is a misleading diagnosis that has been used for over 30 years. The heel spurs do not cause the pain, but the damage to the soft tissue of the plantar fascia attaching the spur, does. Decades ago, surgeons used to remove the spurs and there was minimal improvements. At this stage, they discovered it was the damaged soft tissue, not the bone or spur causing the pain.

The condition labelled heel spurs can be a serious problem for you. It’s a nasty condition and one that needs to be treated fast once it presents itself or ideally prevented in the first place. A recent study found that 50% of sufferers of this heel pain still had it after 5 years! In the same study, they found that 46% still had it after 10 years! Do you want to still be suffering in 5-10 years?
