Calcaneal spur

A calcaneal spur is a bony outgrowth from the calcaneal tuberosity (heel bone). Calcaneal spurs are typically detected by x-ray examination. It is a form of exostosis. When a foot is exposed to constant stress, calcium deposits build up on the bottom of the heel bone.

Prevention of Heel Spurs

You can prevent heel spurs by

wearing well-fitting shoes with shock-absorbent soles,

choosing appropriate shoes for each physical activity;

warming up and doing stretching exercises before each activity;

Avoid wearing shoes with excessive wear on the heels and soles.

If you are overweight, losing weight may also help prevent heel spurs.

I’ve got excellent feedback in the treatment of calcaneal spurs by

1 advising soft-soled shoes

2 Walk&Run as much as possible only on soft surfaces like sand or soil and avoid running on concrete

3, vitamin d3 supplements, calcium and magnesium

4, the most important is biochemical remedy Calcarea flourica 6 x,4 tablets morning and evening for one month.
