It’s hard not to be active in a state as beautiful as Wyoming. Whether you spend your free time hiking, running, or adventuring with your pup, you may end up with some aches and pains along the way, including heel spurs. Instead of letting this injury hold you back, you can get treatment from the board-certified and fellowship-trained doctors at Premier Bone & Joint Centers. We can diagnose and treat your heel spurs at our satellite clinic in Torrington.
What Causes Heel Spurs?
A heel spur is a calcium deposit that builds up on the bottom of the heel over time. While heel spurs can happen to anyone, you may be more likely to develop them if you:
- Have flat or high arches
- Walk or run frequently
- Wear shoes that are too small or fit poorly
- Carry excessive body weight
- Have been diagnosed with arthritis or diabetes
A Custom-Tailored Treatment
If our foot specialists determine that you do have heel spurs, they will formulate a treatment plan specific to you and the severity of your condition. In many cases, we suggest a conservative treatment plan that includes rest, physical therapy, pain medication, and orthotic inserts. If these methods aren’t effective or your heel spurs are severe enough, we may recommend surgery. You can rest assured that if it comes to this, you will be in the capable and caring hands of our orthopedic surgeons.
Persistent pain in your heel shouldn’t be ignored. Premier Bone & Joint Centers can provide you with the treatment you need at our Torrington, WY, satellite clinic.
