does anybody know a good treatment for heel spurs at home?

A few things.: Ice, heat, stretching exercises to stretch back of legs and plantar fascia. Massage can help. Rest. See podiatrist if this is nit helpful.

OTC arch supports: you can try the thick gel heel pads but you will probably do better with an otc arch support- in sporting good stores- not drug stores. If not successful, you may need a cortisone injections or custom orthotics. Don't waste time with frozen rollers, or other gadgets- they do nothing.
