I had two heel spurs, one in each heel. I suffered terribly for about 5 years, and I worked in a hospital ?.. No- one knew about these at the time I was in pain, till I bought… two Orthotics half way ones, and used them every-time I was on my feet. It took about three months for the pain to go. The heel spurs (they are a bone that looks like a claw.) they stay, but the inflammation around the heel spur goes. It's the only thing that helped get rid of mine, without having an operation or injections. Do not wear tight fitting or high heeled shoes . You could also buy full fitting shoes but a half a size bigger to be able to take the Orthotic comfortably. Try and use Trainers with the orthotics in at all times. Therapeutic treatment of heel pain associated with Plantar Fasciitis, Heel spurs, and related discomforts use Heel Orthotics. The orthotic helps lift the Plantar Fasciitis directly beneath the part of the foot where the heel meets the arch of the foot. These help the heel's natural fat pad, and provides natural structural reinforcement to prevent collapse of the mid foot. You can buy them from a chemist, the ones you have fitted, cost an arm and a leg. So make inquiries first about the cost. I hope this information helps everyone who has this very painful affliction. Believe me it REALLY WORKS... It certainly did for me.
If you have a pain in your heel it may be bruised. This could be could caused by not having enough padding in your shoes. When I had a bruised heel everyday I soaked my foot i…n a bowl of Epsom salts. Then iced it down. Once in a while I would walk on it for a while. It only took a week or two to heel completely heel.
A healing treatment that uses needles is called acupuncture. It isconsidered to be an alternative treatment method for things.
Heel spurs and plantar fasciitis are treated by measures that decrease the associated inflammation and avoid reinjury. Local ice applications both reduce pain and inflammation…. Physical therapy methods, including stretching exercises, are used to treat and prevent plantar fasciitis. Anti-inflammatory medications, such as ibuprofen or injections of cortisone , are often helpful. Orthotic devices or shoe inserts are used to take pressure off plantar spurs (donut-shaped insert), and heel lifts can reduce stress on the Achilles tendon to relieve painful spurs at the back of the heel. Similarly, sports running shoes with soft, cushioned soles can be helpful in reducing irritation of inflamed tissues from both plantar fasciitis and heel spurs. Infrequently, surgery is performed on chronically inflamed spurs. http://www.medicinenet.com/heel_spurs/article.htm
To understand how to get rid of heel spurs, it is important to understand how heel spurs develop. Calcium is the most abundant mineral in the body but may also be the most …deficient. The amount of calcium that we absorb from our food varies widely. Our age is one factor. An adolescent may absorb up to 75% of the calcium obtained from foods, while in adults the maximum absorption rate ranges from 20% to 30%. Even though our bones feel solid and seem permanent they're just like any other body tissue - they're constantly being broken down and formed again. In an adult, 20 percent of bone calcium is withdrawn from bones and replaced each year. Thus, every five years the bones are renewed. Calcium is found in the extra cellular fluids and soft tissues of the body where it is vital to normal cell functioning. Much of the calcium in soft tissues is concentrated in muscle, although it is contained in the membrane and cytoplasm of every cell. When the body is deficient of calcium it begins to leach calcium from the bones. In many people this happens to be in the heel of the foot or some other weak area of the body. As the calcium is being leached, it forms an eruption (similar to a volcano). This eruption is the bone spur. Many people that have suffered from bone spurs found relief when they properly supplemented their diet daily with "good" calcium. They found that providing their body with "good" calcium along with other vital minerals stopped the "leaching process" (calcium deficiency) thus allowing the bone spur to shrink down and eventually disappear. With the bone spur gone, the surrounding damage from the spur is able to heal also. Important: The calcium+ must be carefully formulated to be easily digested to accomplish the "good" calcium environment in building healthy body/bone cells. Many people have eliminated heel spurs without surgery by supplementing their diet with a good calcium formula.
A strained Achilles tendon would cause heel pain. Just take it easy for a few days and the pain should go away and be sure to stretch it out good before doing much running.

The intense heal pain after resting can be an indication of one of two issues. The first possibility is Plantar Fasciitis, which is a condition where the thick tissue that sta…rts from the heel and ends at the toe is swollen. It is usually caused when the foot is not allowed to heal properly, therefore, causing a series of micro fractures. This will cause severe pain when pressure is placed on the heel such as in the mornings or after long periods of rest. Achilles Tendinitis is the second potential issue. This is when the Achilles' tendon is inflamed thus causing more discomfort when pressure is placed in the area.
