Heel Spur

What is Heel Spur

A heel spur is a deposit of calcium that is located on the underside of the heel bone. A heel spur can extend half an inch on an X-ray. Even though they are painless, they can cause heel pain. Heel spurs are normally associated with painful inflammation of the plantar fascia, which is a fibrous band of tissue that starts from the heel bone to the ball of the foot.
