Can heel spurs be treated?

You have a condition called plantar fasciitis. The cause is due to tension traction of this ligament against the heel bone. Although you have an enthesopathy called a heel sour, this is a result of the traction pull on the heel bone from the plantar fascia. Heel spur is not the cause of your pain, but a reflection of what is going on biomechanically. Most patients do not require surgery to address this condition. Stretching exercises for the Achilles’ tendon/Plantar fascia will help address your condition by allowing less traction! Cortisone injections are frequently done. A good pair of inserts or custom orthotics. Physical therapy. Oral anti-inflammatory medications. These conservative treatments are usually effective to treat plantar fasciitis. If your condition persists after 6 months of conscientious conservative treatments, then surgery may be required to be your next course.  

Hope this helps.
