What is a Heel Spur?

Heel Spur: A heel spur is an abnormal growth of bone on the back or bottom of the heel. Heel spurs can take years to devleop and are caused from repeated trauma to the bone from the tendon pulling of the bone creating inflammation. As the body naturally attempts to heal it deposits calcium and other bone building elements. Eventually with repeated trauma a spur will begin to develop.
