HEEL SPURS/CALCANEAL SPURS
Known as the "toothache in the foot", a heel spur is a nail-like excess bone that grows on the sole of the heel bone (calcaneal bone). This solid growth is found around the ligaments and tendons of the foot, where they attach to the heel bone. The spur grows from the bone and into the flesh of the foot.
The heel bone is protected from impact by several layers of fatty tissue. Pain is caused when the nail-like, heel spur disrupts this tissue and inflames the plantar fascia, a fibrous band of connecting tissue that extends from the heel bone to the toes and supports the arch. The inflammation or tear of the plantar fascia is called plantar fasciitis.
