Calcaneal spur heel - Definition


Definition


The heel spur is a bony outgrowth that develops at the calcaneus bone located on the inside of the heel. It is initially due to an inflammation of the membrane that connects the foot phalanges to the calcaneus bone, called the fascia: this is plantar fasciitis. The symptoms include pain in the foot, just in front of the heel, relieved by effort, but reappearing when at rest. The fascia will become enflamed and slowly harden, causing the heel spur to appear on an x-ray. The treatment involves analgesics, sometimes corticosteroid injections, and surgery, in exceptional cases.
