Re: Heel Spur PAIN!!

If the pain is radiating up to the lower back, then it is possible that you might have a low back problem or even tarsal tunnel syndrome. A neurologist might be a thought. They are diagnosticians- they don't do surgery. If it turns out to be neither then you might discuss your concerns with your doctor. You have had many conservative treatments, all of which work on some patients some of the time. We can never predict.

Good luck.

A silicone insert on the back of the Achillotrain leaves tendon pressure-free and provides intermittent compression for the reduction of swelling and edema.
