In brief: Stretchinig/good sho
Heel spurs and heel pain are usually due to plantar fasciitis.
This is treated with a good stretching program, ice, good shoes with good arch supports, perhaps heel cups and maybe night spiints. Most of this can be done by the patient but if not responding, may need to see pcp, pt, orthopedist, podiatrist and or orthotics specialist. This can be helped!

In brief: It's not your spur
Most heel pain is a result of plantar fasciitis, close to 85-90% of people get better with conservative treatment which includes: rest, achilles tendon stretches, ice, orthotics, and antiiflammatories.
Heel spurs are not painful.
