Our team of board-certified and fellowship-trained orthopedic doctors have the expertise to help heal your heel spurs in our conveniently located satellite clinic in Riverton, Wyoming.

Signs of Heel Spurs

It can be tricky to detect heel spurs at first, especially since they don’t always cause pain and not all heel pain is caused by spurs. With that said, common symptoms of heel spurs include:

  • Pain, especially when barefoot
  • Inflammation and swelling
  • A small protrusion or growth
  • Tenderness or warmth

These are fairly general symptoms, however, so the best way to know for sure if you’ve developed heel spurs is to see the specialists at Premier Bone & Joint Centers.

Treating Your Heel Spurs

Our expert team can thoroughly assess your heel pain and other symptoms through various tests, including physical exams and X-ray imaging. Once we determine that you do in fact have a heel spur, we’ll start off with conservative treatment options, such as physical therapy, rest, and pain medication. If these methods aren’t effective, then we may recommend surgery to remove the heel spur and provide you with the relief you need.
