That’s the kind of decision that will almost guarantee heel spurs will worsen. You might be wondering what even causes heel spurs to develop. Let’s explore that, shall we? Basically, heel spurs are the byproduct of plantar fasciitis. They occur when calcium deposits build up in the underside of the heel bone, which occurs when stretching of the plantar fascia, a strain in the ligaments, and consistent membrane tearing covers the heel bone. Folks most predisposed to this kind of injury are athletes or any other rigorous activity. Some of the many risk factors of heel spurs include: running or jogging on hard surfaces, excess weight and obesity, poorly fitting or worn shoes, and walking abnormalities (placing stress on the heel bone, nerves near the heel, and ligaments). To get this taken care of, all you have to do is check in with Active Ankle & Foot and be well on the way to meeting with our podiatrist in Oakhurst.
