Hurting heels? You might be suffering from Heel Spurs, in fact you may be suffering from more than that! These bony outgrowths, caused by strain on the muscles of the foot, can be triggered by other, more painful conditions. While around half of all Heel Spurs will do a pretty good job of hurting all by themselves, for those placed under the foot this may also be a sign of Plantar Fasciitis, just as those placed at the back of the heel may be pointing to a case of Achilles Tendonitis. It's worth knowing that Heel Spurs don't cause either of these conditions, but that the reverse can be true.

Calcaneal Spurs (also known as heel spurs) are small bony protrusions on the heel. They can extend as much as a half-inch, and they can cause severe heel pain. There are two types of calcaneal spur; an inferior calcaneal spur- a spur on the bottom of the heel - and a posterior calcaneal spur Ė a spur on the back of the heel.

Heel Spurs are a bony outgrowth from the heel bone at the back of the foot caused by calcium depositing at the rear of the foot every time the muscle along the bottom of the foot (the plantar fascia) stretches. The condition can range from being almost painless in some patients to causing extreme discomfort in others and is commonly associated with Plantar Fasciitis.
