Heel spurs are small protrusions from the heel bone. Heel spurs are attached to the band on the bottom of the heel known as the plantar fascia. The heel spur itself indicates that there has been long-term stress on the heel. However, the heel spur does not cause actual pain. The pain is the result of inflamed and swollen soft tissues around the fascia band and nerves coursing through the area.
If you suffer from this condition, don’t delay treatment. Call our doctors in Tampa for an immediate appointment and put an end to your heel pain.
