Board-certified care in Colorado Springs for painful, debilitating heel spurs
Here’s what you should know about getting board-certified Colorado Springs heel spurs treatment at Intermountain Foot & Ankle:
Heel spurs are abnormal growths of bone that build up on the heel bone, where the plantar fascia is attached. Poor footwear, running, or heavy bodyweight can strain the plantar fascia where the tissue pulls on the bone. The extra bone grows over time as a response to the constant straining causing the heel spur.
Heel spurs are often painful and may not heal quickly or properly on their own. Fortunately, heel spurs can be treated in various ways to include:
- cold packs
- better footwear
- shoe inserts
- corticosteroid injections
If you suffer from heel spurs, you can seek medical help from a podiatrist—a physician specially-trained to deal with painful foot disorders like heel spurs. Be sure to ask as many questions as it takes for you to feel comfortable with your medical treatment.
