A heel spur is an inflammation of the tendon plate of the foot that often occurs in men and women between the ages of 40 and 60. We often see that someone with heel spur complaints has started to do more sport (think of running) or has started to wear other shoes. Because of the pain it can be difficult to walk or stand for a long time. In order to diagnose heel spur, an X-ray should be taken at the hospital. However, making an X-ray does not change the treatment or the complaints of a heel spur. The physiotherapists at Fysiofitaal can guide you through your rehabilitation by means of exercises and pain-relieving treatments.
