Calcaneal Heel Spurs
What are Calcaneal or heel spurs?
A calaneal spur (or heel spur) is a bony spur (osteophyte) or projection on the back or underside of the heel bone (Calcaneus bone).
A spur which develops on the underside of the calcaneus (heel) may also be associated with inflammation of the plantar fascia (band of tissue which connects the calcaneus or heel bone with the toes) and is considered to be one of the most common orthopedic complaints.
A spur on the back of the calcaneus or heel occurs where the Achilles tendon attaches to the heel. It is also known as ‘Achilles Calcific Insertional Tendinosis (AICT)’.
Symptoms caused by Calcaneal Spurs
Not all heel spurs cause symptoms and are sometimes routinely diagnosed during an X-Ray. The symptoms, if any, can range from mild to sever and varies depending on the location of the spur.
Spurs formed on the underside of the heel cause pain and tenderness by stepping down on the heel. This pain is usually more in the morning on first stepping your heel on the floor and also increases with walking.
Spurs on the back of the heel are associated with inflammation of the Achilles tendon causing pain located on the back side of the heel.

Over the past decades our centres have treated innumerable cases of Calcaneal spurs with results which almost always assure significant pain relief and even a complete recovery. The treatment duration is shorter when the spurs cause mild to moderate symptoms as compared to spurs which are severely enlarged.
The treatment is intended to relieve inflammation and swelling at the site of the spur by prescribing proven homeopathic remedies which work specifically on the heel and prevent further enlargement of the spur and inflammation of the bony tissue and tendons. Alongside, we also recommend icing and using gel shoe-inserts which temporarily reduce the inflammation and pressure on the heel.
