Heel Spurs Adelaide
A Heel Spur coincides with the pain inflicting condition: Plantar Fasciitis which affects the tendon/ligament-type structure in the sole of the foot that usually cause pain in the heel and/or arch. The Plantar Fascia becomes scarred and degenerated. It may sometimes cause small tears in the ligament belly (arch) or more commonly where it attaches to the heel bone.
Most people will have a heel spur maybe present, but these are not the cause of heel pain. “Heel Spurs” is a misleading diagnosis that has been used for over 30 years. The heel spurs do not cause the pain, but the damage to the soft tissue of the plantar fascia attaching the spur, does.
