Many people have heel spurs without having any pain at all.
People with chronic pain under the base of the heel actually have Plantar Fasciitis.
The pain always comes from the Plantar Fascia pulling on the heel bone and not from the spurs themselves.
Heel spurs are not the problem. Do not focus your treatment around the heel spurs, instead, focus on treating the Plantar Fasciitis.
Treatment for Plantar Fasciitis is different to treatment for heel spurs. With Plantar Fasciitis, the treatment needs to revolve around removing strain from the Plantar Fascia and not cushioning the heel as with heel spurs. Read more about Plantar Fasciitis Treatment.
