Heel spurs occur when calcium deposits or bone-like growths develop between the heel bone and arch of the foot. They can affect different parts of the foot. Diagnosing heel spurs can be difficult because they don’t always cause pain and discomfort. Common symptoms can include pain, inflammation, and swelling. The affected part of the foot may also feel warm to the touch. Calcium deposits or bone-like growths may eventually be visible to the naked eye. Several people may not experience any symptoms. Doctors can diagnose heel spurs through the use of X-rays and other diagnostic tests used to diagnose other foot health issues. Heel spurs can be caused by muscle strains. Repetitive stress from exercise and physical activities like walking, running, and jumping can also cause heel spurs. Heel spurs can also be caused by excess weight, obesity, improper footwear, and arthritis, among other health issues.

[00:00:16] Blanca. And I’m a registered nurse. I had been suffering from heel spurs for almost two years. At work and like, it would make it very difficult throughout my shifts. I worked long hours, like twelve hours, on my feet, on and off, and that would make it very difficult. And also just overall life, like I’ve been wanting to like run or exercise and that would stop it from me doing that.
[00:00:47] As a nurse for long anymore, because it was you know, I was like, maybe I need to change, find something different. Just being on my feet. It was unbearable sometimes. I’ve only seen him three times and it’s just been like a hundred percent. Like it’s just been a great change. I can’t believe it’s my third visit and like the pain in my heels has like, completely gone away. I love my job. But the pain was making it very hard. I was looking for sports chiropractic because I had seen like on YouTube that that may have helped with heel spurs.
[00:01:29] I think my foot podiatrist was saying like, you know, was talking about surgery and I just didn’t want to go through with it. Of course, I’m already doing that. I’m recommending him to my friends. He’s very knowledgeable. He explained to me, you know, everything about my body’s dynamics and what, you know, why my pain, you know, why my heels were hurting? Very friendly. Professional. Thank you. Thank you for changing my life.
