The process of bone formation is initiated when the heel is subjected to constant wear and tear; this is typical among most athletes, runners, or even people who begin jogging or walking daily after years of no exercise.
Some causes of heel spurs and plantar fasciitis include:
- Abnormal or lopsided walking, which places excessive stress on the heel bone, ligaments and nerves
- Running, jogging or jumping, especially on hard surfaces
- Poorly fitted or badly worn shoes, especially those lacking appropriate arch support
- Excess weight and obesity
Having a Foot Assessment with an Orthotist can allow for a diagnoses of the foot pain, whether it being Heel Spurs or Plantar Fasciitis.After the examination, treatment options will become available and can either be a simple off-the shelf product or something a bit more tailored to your condition,
