Heel Spur Treatment and Relief:


Since a heel spur is a radiological (X-ray) finding and often seen in those suffering from plantar fasciitis, heel spur treatment includes alleviating the pressure placed on the spur, so as to reduce inflammation in that area.

Rest, icing and over-the-counter anti-inflammatory or prescription medications can help ease symptoms of Heel Spurs. You may be instructed to perform stretching exercises to help relax the tissues in the heel.

At Toronto Orthotics, treatments available include soft-tissue massage, ultrasound therapy and tarsal (foot) joint manipulation.

New patients are examined for the need for Custom Foot Orthotic, which when required, can hasten healing and correct any biomechanical dysfunction that may be present.

The majority of heel spurs are treated without surgery. Non-surgical treatments can relieve pain, but it may take some time for symptoms to resolve.
