Heel Spur

The heel spur is a clinical picture in the foot area that is associated with pain. The cause of the heel spur is an inflammation of the tendon plate that spans the arch of the foot (plantar fascia) or an inflammation of the Achilles tendon at the attachment to the heel bone. If the chronic inflammation persists over a longer period of time, calcification of the heel occurs, which then becomes visible as a spur on an X-ray. Accordingly, a distinction is made between the upper and lower heel spur.

A heel spur can be prevented through a healthy lifestyle, including correct movement and (foot) posture. With an integrative approach, a personalised plan can be drawn up to prevent and treat a heel spur.
