Re: painful heel spur!

If you will do a Google search for Heel Spur or Plantar Fasciitis, there will be many hits with alot of information. I would hope your doctor would have explained the causes and possible treatments available.

What works on one patient does not always work on the next, so be prepared. An orthotic or arch support is a very commonly used device for this problem. The plantar fascia needs support to take the strain off of it. The spur is a natural process, not unique to humans nor is it unique to the heel. We have spurs in many other places in our body. The calcification of a chronically inflamed area is a normal process that occurs in animals. Even dinosaurs had spurs!

The proprietary gel also provides extra protective padding to help comfort the pain caused by metatarsal soreness. May be used for relieving the burning sensation under the metatarsal heads, calluses and tarsal fat pads.
