Welcome to Bowling Orthopaedics, your trusted source for comprehensive orthopaedic care and treatment. If you are suffering from heel spurs and seeking effective solutions, you've come to the right place. Our experienced team of orthopaedic specialists is dedicated to helping you find relief and heal your heel spurs for a pain-free life. Let's explore the causes, symptoms, and treatment options for heel spurs.

Understanding Heel Spurs: Causes and Symptoms

Heel spurs, also known as calcaneal spurs, are bony protrusions that develop on the underside of the heel bone. They often occur as a result of repeated strain and stress on the foot ligaments and muscles. Common causes of heel spurs include:

  • Prolonged standing or walking on hard surfaces
  • Obesity or excessive weight
  • Improper footwear
  • Plantar fasciitis (inflammation of the plantar fascia)
  • Achilles tendonitis (inflammation of the Achilles tendon)

Although heel spurs may not always cause symptoms, they can lead to intense pain and discomfort. Common symptoms associated with heel spurs include:

  • Sharp pain in the heel, especially in the morning or after prolonged rest periods
  • Localized swelling and inflammation
  • Difficulty walking or bearing weight on the affected foot

Treatment Options for Heel Spurs

At Bowling Orthopaedics, we offer a range of advanced treatment options to help you heal your heel spurs and alleviate associated pain. Our approach focuses on personalized care tailored to your specific needs. Depending on the severity of your condition, available treatment options may include:

1. Orthotic Devices

We may recommend orthotic devices, such as custom-made shoe inserts, to provide support and alleviate pressure on your heel. Orthotics can help redistribute weight and reduce discomfort, allowing your heel to heal properly.

2. Physical Therapy

Physical therapy plays a crucial role in healing heel spurs. Our experienced therapists can design a personalized exercise program to strengthen the muscles and ligaments surrounding your heel. This promotes healing, improves flexibility, and reduces pain.

3. Medications

In some cases, we may prescribe pain-relieving medications or anti-inflammatory drugs to manage heel spur symptoms. These medications can help reduce pain and inflammation, enabling you to resume your daily activities with ease.

4. Extracorporeal Shockwave Therapy (ESWT)

ESWT is a non-invasive procedure that uses shockwaves to stimulate healing in the affected area. This treatment option can be highly effective in reducing pain and promoting the healing process for heel spurs.

5. Steroid Injections

For severe cases of heel spurs with persistent pain, we may recommend corticosteroid injections. These injections help reduce inflammation and provide immediate pain relief, allowing you to resume your regular activities without discomfort.
