In brief: Few ways
First, usually the pain is the ligament that attaches to the heel known as the plantar fascia.
Ice, a good arch support, stretching of the achilles tendon are good starts, as is an antiinflammatory. If these initial treatments fail time to see the foot doctor.

In brief: Keep in mind
That heel spurs are responsible for heel pain perhaps 1% of the time.
What is responsible for a heel spur forming and is usually the actual pain is plantar fasciitis. That is commonly treated by conservative measures, starting with orthotics, stretching, some form of therapy and frequently oral or injectable antiinflammatory medication. Rarrely does a spur have to be removed.
