Physical Therapy and Heel Spurs
I have been a reader of your column for a long time and have always enjoyed it, but I am concerned with your most recent article addressing heel spurs. Being a physical therapist, I was very much surprised to see that you neglected to use physical therapy as an intervention for heel spurs. You mentioned exercising and stretching, but who provides this care? Having many friends who are orthopedic surgeons, I find it highly unlikely that they would have the time to sit with a patient and explain to them the mechanics of stretching. I also believe you missed out a large portion of treatment in terms of modalities like phonophoresis and iontophoresis. Phonophoresis drives hydrocortisone solution into the tissue using ultrasound, and iontophoresis uses electrical current to drive anti-inflammatory medication in. I mean no disrespect by this letter, but as a therapist who treats three to five of these patients per month with very good results, I was slightly offended at not having my profession mentioned in your article. Thank you for your consideration.

I began exercising again recently and began experiencing excruciating pain from what I've been told are heel spurs. In laymen's terms, can you help me to understand this problem and what can be done to ease the pain of heel spurs? M.T., Fayetteville, N.C. A Certain physical activities can aggravate heel spurs, which are growths of extra bone at the heel that may form when the connective tissue extending from the heel bone to the base of the toes pulls excessively on the heel. The spurs are usually painful as they develop, especially when a person is walking or putting extra pressure on the area while exercising. Sometimes a fluid pocket develops beneath the spur and becomes inflamed.

Some questions answered
What causes pain in the heel?
Pain in the heel can be caused by many things. The commonest cause is plantar fascitis (which will be discussed more in the next section). Other causes include:
being overweight
constantly being on your feet, especially on a hard surface like concrete and wearing hard-soled footwear
thinning or weakness of the fat pads of the heel
injury to the bones or padding of the heel
arthritis in the ankle or heel (subtalar) joint
irritation of the nerves on the inner or outer sides of the heel fracture of the heel bone (calcaneum) back to top What is plantar fascitis? The function of the heel in walking is to absorb the shock of your foot striking the ground as it is put down and to start springing you forward on the next step. It contains a strong bone (the calcaneum). Under the bone are a large number of small pockets of fat in strong elastic linings, which absorb much of the shock (fat pads). The heel is attached to the front of the foot by a number of strong ligaments which run between the front part of the calcaneum and various other parts of the foot. The strongest ligament is the plantar fascia, which attaches the heel to the toes and helps to balance the various parts of the foot as you walk. It therefore takes a lot of stress as you walk.

Dear Dr. Dave and Dr. Dee,
I am an early middle-aged female who is experiencing on going pain from what my doctors have told me is “heel spurs”. Actually, she told me the medical name for it, but I can’t remember what it was. Anyway, I have pain along the sole of my foot and heel, especially during walking. I have tried orthotics for a number of years and they are no longer helping me. My doctor states I have to live with it for the rest of my life. I am asking you for your suggestions. Thank you.
Gimpin’ in Atlanta
Dear Atlanta,
This might be a good time to talk a little bit about “heel spurs,” the condition which is properly known as “plantar fasciitis.” This is an inflammation of the ligamentous structures along the sole of the foot, which causes pain especially with stretching, which occurs unfortunately with just about every step. It can be a very painful and chronic situation. The inflammation is often made worse by overuse, poorly fitting shoes with inadequate arch support, obesity which places an increased load on the foot and other causes.
Physicians diagnose plantar fasciitis, and exclude other causes of pain in the foot, by taking your history, doing a careful physical examination, and taking an x-ray of the foot. The x-ray often shows an osteophyte or exostosis on the heel bone, sometimes called a “bone spur” or “heel spur” hence the popular name.

Excessive force and stretching of the plantar fascia causes heel spurs to form . SYMPTOMS of heel spurs and plantar fasciitis usually develop slowly.
Heel pain is one of the most common foot problems. Heel pain is felt under the heel when standing or walking. The pain usually comes from the thick fibrous tissue called the plantar fascia that runs the length of the arch on the sole of the foot. PLANTAR FASCIITIS, or inflammation of this tissue, is the most common cause of heel pain. The longer the inflammation lasts, the greater the chance that a BONE SPUR will form where the fibrous tissue attaches to the heel bone. Excessive force and stretching of the plantar fascia causes heel spurs to form. Distance runners are prone to chronic cases of plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. Others at risk are those who have: * excessive pronation (which is bearing weight on the inside surface of the foot) * flat feet * knock-knees * high arches or * tight calf muscles SYMPTOMS of heel spurs and plantar fasciitis usually develop slowly. Pain is worse when first rising in the morning and diminishes during the day. The pain increases if weight-bearing activities are performed. Severe cases may have numbness on the outside of the foot. A lump can sometimes be felt when a heel spur develops. Shoes with poor arch supports and very stiff soles can contribute to the condition. TREAT HEEL PAIN BY: * stopping the activity that caused the problem * ice massaging the area for the first 48 to 72 hours after feeling pain * wearing a one-eighth-inch heel wedge inside both shoes * not walking in bare feet * continuing non-weight bearing activities like swimming or biking

Healing the heel
Pain in the heel is one of the most common ailments of the foot. The most common form of heel pain is pain at the bottom of the heel. It tends to occur for no apparent reason and is often worse when first placing weight on the foot. Patients often complain of pain in the morning, or after getting up to stand after sitting for a while. The pain can be a sharp, shooting pain or present as a tearing feeling at the bottom of the heel. As the condition progresses, there may be a throbbing pain or there may be soreness that radiates up the back of the leg. Pain may also radiate into the arch of the foot. To understand the cause of the pain one must understand the anatomy of the foot and some basic mechanics in the functioning of the foot. A thick ligament, called the plantar fascia, is attached to the bottom of the heel and spread out into the ball of the foot, attaching to the base of the toes. The plantar fascia is made of dense, fibrous connective tissue that will stretch very little. It acts like a shock absorber. As the foot presses the ground with each step, it flattens out, lengthening the foot, making the plantar fascia stretch slightly. When the heel comes off the ground, the tension on the ligament is released. Force from above tends to make the foot elongate, making flat the foot. Pain can result when these tissues become irritated or inflamed, or when small spurs grow on the heel bone. Adults, regardless of occupation or activity level, develop heel pain most frequently.

Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis
Heel spurs are the best known heel problems. A heel spur is a point of excess bone growth on the heel. The bone growth usually extends forward towards the toes. Heel spurs are visible on Xray. The most common heel problems are actually caused by a painful tearing of the plantar fascia connecting the toes and the heel. (Plantar refers to the bottom of the foot and fascia is a type of dense fibrous connective tissue.) This may result in either a heel spur or plantar fasciitis. If your foot flattens or becomes unstable during critical times in the walking or running cycle, the attachment of the plantar fascia into your heel bone may begin to stretch and pull away from the heel bone. This will result in pain and possibly swelling. The pain is especially noticeable when you push off with your toes while walking. Since this movement stretches the already inflamed portion of the fascia. Without treatment the pain will usually spread around the heel. The pain is usually centered at a location just in front of the heel toward the arch. When the tearing occurs at the bone itself, a the bone may attempt to heal itself by producing new bone. This results in the development of a heel spur. Without the spur the condition is called plantar fasciitis. The pain of this condition may cause you to try to walk on your toes, or alter your running stride and gait which will cause further damage and may cause a problem to develop in your healthy foot. Gait changes in running may also lead to ankle, knee, hip or back pain.

71. Heel Pain - 1 August 2002
Heel pain the facts. There are various types of heel pain. Some of the mostcommon are heel spurs (plantar fasciitis); heel bursitis and heel bumps.
About SCP Heel pain
When walking, your heels repeatedly hit the ground with considerable force. They have to be able to absorb the impact and provide a firm support for the weight of the body. When pain develops in the heel, it can be very disabling, making every step a problem, affecting your posture. Heel pain - the facts
There are various types of heel pain. Some of the most common are: heel spurs (plantar fasciitis); heel bursitis and heel bumps. SYMPTOMS Heel Spurs: the pain is usually worst on standing, particularly first thing in the morning when you get up. It is relatively common, though usually occurring in the over forty's age group. There are no visible features on the heel but a deep localised painful spot can be found in or around the middle of the sole of the heel. Although it is often associated with a spur of bone sticking out of the heel bone (heel spur syndrome), approximately ten per cent of the population have heel spurs without any pain. Heel Bursitis: pain can be felt at the back of the heel when the ankle joint is moved and there may be a swelling on both sides of the Achilles tendon. Or you may feel pain deep inside the heel when it makes contact with the ground. Heel Bumps: recognised as firm bumps on the back of the heel , they are often rubbed by shoes causing pain.
