A heel spur is the formation of bone-like calcium deposits that form on the heel bone. Although it is not large enough to be seen with the naked eye, the pain is felt very much. The heel spur, which is easily seen on the x-ray, is 0.5 cm in length. Initially, the heel spur concerns only the heel part of the feet, but over time it causes pain in the entire foot. Of course, not every heel pain is associated with a heel spur. In addition, painless heel spurs are also seen.
What Causes Heel Spurs?
There are some reasons that cause the formation of heel spurs on the feet. Repeating these causes causes heel spurs, which negatively affect the feet.
• Overweight and obesity
• Wrong choice of shoes or wrongly worn shoes
• Running or hard walking on hard surfaces
• Gait disorders that put stress on the foot, heel bone or ligaments.
Health is a whole. Therefore, overweight and obesity increase the pressure on the foot and cause some problems, especially heel spurs. You must protect your health as a whole.
Wrong shoes cause your feet to be uncomfortable and to face some discomforts all day long.
Running or walking on hard surfaces in a way that makes the foot tired is also one of the behaviors that damage the foot.
Gait disorders cause stress on the tissues in the foot area, as they disrupt the natural structure of the foot. The result of this stress is pain.
What Are the Symptoms of Heel Spurs?
Heel spurs, which do not appear clearly as a symptom, may cause intermittent or chronic pain. It is very difficult to understand whether this pain is a heel spur or not.
