HEEL SPURS AND PLANTAR FASCIITIS

Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis                                       

The plantar fascia lies underneath the skin on the bottom of the foot. This long, thin ligament connects the front of the foot to the heel. Its role is to support the arch of the foot; as it absorbs strains and stresses, the tissue can tear, causing inflammation and discomfort. Plantar fasciitis risk factors include a low or high arch, obesity, and repetitive impact from activity such as running or other sports. 


Many individuals with plantar fasciitis also experience heel spurs. Common symptoms of this related condition include pain on the bottom of the foot near the heel, increased pain after exercise, and stiffness. A heel spur is a pointed bony growth that occurs as a result of calcium deposit on the underside of the heel bone and can occur at any age, but may be most common in adults over 40 years old.
