No difference: Most of planter fasciitis pain comes from the bone spur we have there.

Often they don't: "bone" spurs or "bone spur syndrome" of the is often used interchangeably with the diagnosis of plantar fasciitis.Pf is an inflamation of the origin of the pf on the heel. 60% time there is seen on an xray a heel spur. #)5 of all peole over 50 have heel spurs that are asymptomatic. Unless the spur points directly toward the floor the spur is the smoke not the fire. An MRI is best to confirm.
