No: Ice may help soothe the pain associated with a bone spur but it will do nothing to make it go away.

Specializes in Orthopedic Foot and Ankle Surgery

No: It may help what causes the spur known as plantar fasciitis. This is what is probably causing your pain. Stretching, ice, rest are all beneficial. The spur itself doesn't actually cause the pain.

Specializes in Podiatry

No: it may help but will not heel a heal. You may need a cortisone injection, arch support or custom orthotic. Only the custom orthotic is a long term treatment. Ice is temporary
