Medication alone, rarely, if ever, works in successfully treating one's heel pain, when caused by typical plantar fasciitis. This is an over use problem aggravated by age, mechanics and support. Unless all the issues are addressed, the problem just keeps getting worse until the pain severely limits your overuse. ...Read more

Heal spur very painful what can I do to ease the pain?

Heal spur very painful what can I do to ease the pain?

Replacement insoles: Or orthotics... Take the insoles out of your shoes and replace them with ones that have more cushioning and support. I like spenco products. The one i recommend most is the spenco polysorb cross-trainer insole. This will give you cushioning at heel strike and support for the arch. It may not have an "immediate" effect though. See an podiatrist if symptons persist. Use otc aleve as well. ...Read more

Dr I have a heal spur but my foot continues to swell really bad do you know what is causing this? Pain in the foot leg gets real tight especially the skin it feels like rubber

Need a good exam: The actual heel spur is rarely the cause of heel pain. The pain is usually from strain and inflammation of the plantar fascia. Swelling can indicate a partial tear of the fascia or Achilles. Pain and tightness in the leg should be evaluated as soon as possible since it can indicate a blood clot. Prompt attention and evaluation is important. ...Read more
