Calcaneal Spur Treatment in Chennai

What is Calcaneal Spur?

The Calcaneal Spur is also called a Heel Spur which is in a heel bone. It is the growth of calcium crystal in the calcanium bone that affect the ligaments and tendons of the foot. When it is met with constant pressure, calcium deposition occurs beneath this bone and if the pressure continues, the deposition takes the shape of a spur causing pain. A heel spur is a foot condition that creates by a bony-like growth called a calcium deposit that extends between your heel bone and arch. People who walks on an uneven surface or stand for a long time causes pressure beneath the heel bone thus finally triggering the Calcaneal Spur.

While the function of the kidney decreases, uric acid levels in the blood increases. As a result the entire uric acid gets deposited under the Calcaneal bone and toes causing the pain. Osteophytic changes in the bone causes bone spurs to develop underneath the Calcaneal bone and that causes the Calcaneal spur.

Heel spurs start in the front of and underneath your heel. Detecting this heel spur can be challenging, it doesn’t always cause pain and not all heel pain is related to spur. This mainly occurs due to the anatomical changes of heel bone thus localized with the cause such as stress at the heel bone calcifying the soft tissue attachments.
