Bone spurs are growths of bone that can develop on the feet, typically near the heel or the toes. They result when the plantar tendon pulls at the place where it attaches to the bone of the heel. These bone spurs can be quite painful.
Your physician can recommend a course of treatment to rectify bone spurs, which may include special shoes or inserts, anti-inflammatory medication or cortisone injections. In some, more severe, cases, surgery may be necessary.
