Heel Spurs - Podiatry
You can help prevent heel spur symptoms from coming back by wearing the proper shoes. Customized orthotics and insoles can help relieve pressure. It is important to perform your exercises to help keep your foot stretched and relaxed.
Am I at Risk
Heel spurs are more common in middle-aged adults and people that have had plantar fasciitis for a long time. People with flat feet or high arches are vulnerable to heel spurs. Women that wear high-heeled shoes are more susceptible as well.
