Treatment Options for Heel Spurs

Treatment for heel spurs often begins with conservative measures such as rest, ice therapy, and over-the-counter pain medications to reduce inflammation and manage pain. Physical therapy exercises that stretch and strengthen the foot muscles and plantar fascia may also be recommended. In some cases, corticosteroid injections or custom orthotic devices may be prescribed to provide relief. Surgical intervention is considered only when other treatments have failed to alleviate the symptoms.

In addition to these treatments, some patients may also benefit from wearing supportive footwear and making lifestyle modifications, such as avoiding activities that put excessive strain on the heels. It’s important to work closely with a healthcare professional to develop a comprehensive treatment plan that addresses the underlying causes of heel spurs and provides long-term relief.
