What Causes Heel Spurs?
TACKLE HEEL SPURS. KEEP MOVING.
Even if you have pain, you may not even know you have heel spurs until an X-ray reveals them, so it’s important to talk to a doctor about your symptoms for a proper diagnosis. In order to provide you with heel spur relief, your doctor may recommend a course of treatment or develop a heel spur pain management plan that may include:
- Stretching exercises
- Taping or strapping to rest stressed muscles and tendons
- Physical therapy
In addition, you may want to talk to your doctor about shoe inserts or orthotic devices from Dr. Scholl’s®
