A heel spur happens when people pound their feet hard enough or long enough so that a little bit of calcium forms to help reinforce the tendon on the bottom of their foot. Cutting out a heel spur is seldom a good idea because your body placed the calcium deposit in your tendon for a good reason. People who get heel spurs tend to put more strain on their feet through several ways such as: being flat footed, over weight, over use through running, tennis, softball etc. Treating a heel spur involves hands on techniques as well as orthotics, weight loss, and special muscle balance exercises.
