Southeastern Pennsylvania Treatment for Heel Spurs
Relieving Discomfort in Newtown, Warminster & Surrounding Areas
Are you experiencing pain in your heel or arches? The experienced podiatry team at Bux-Mont Foot & Ankle Care Centers can help. We provide comprehensive care and treatment for heel spurs and other foot conditions. Heel spurs are a type of condition that produces a bony outgrowth of the heel and can eventually affect other parts of your foot if left untreated. The pain from this can come from a variety of factors including unnecessary strain, trauma or injury, foot and ankle fractures, and most often caused by plantar fasciitis.
Causes & Symptoms of Heel Spurs
If you are someone who naturally has problems with their foot arch, has a high arch or flat feet, you may be more prone to developing heel spurs and other heel pain conditions. These painful conditions can lead to inflammation of the tissue and when extended to the heel can result in inflammation and swelling.
The most common symptoms and causes of heel spurs include:
- Swelling at the front of your heel
- Inflammation and redness
- Standing on feet for prolonged periods
- Physical activity putting too much strain on heels
When to See a Podiatrist
Pain from heel spurs may take longer to fade the more you wait for treatment. If you experience heel pain that lasts for longer than a month, you should schedule an appointment with our highly experienced podiatry team at Bux-Mont Foot & Ankle Care Centers. We offer many non-invasive treatments for heel spurs, including stretching exercises, physical therapy, and orthotic devices. In very rare cases, a patient may require surgery to remove the spur.
