Heel Spur Treatment

Heel Spur Treatment from
Orthopedic Specialists in the Quad Cities

ORA Orthopedics provides heel spur treatment by its experienced team of foot doctors. As the largest and most trusted provider of orthopedic care in the Quad Cities, generations of families in Moline, IL, Bettendorf, IA, Davenport, IA, and the surrounding communities have confidently placed their orthopedic foot health in our hands since 1963.

Heel spurs are boney growths that protrude from the underside of the heel bone. They may result from repetitive foot strains and often accompany plantar fasciitis, a swelling of the fibrous band of tissue that connects the heel to the ball of the foot. It is quite possible to have heel spurs without pain – in fact, many people with heel spurs are not even aware they have them.

If you are experiencing aching or stabbing pain around your heel that does not improve with at-home care (rest or over-the-counter pain medicine), be sure to consult with an ORA foot doctor regarding your treatment options. ORA’s Dr. Russell Carlson talks about common foot injuries walkers and runners may endure, and when to know when it’s time to seek treatment.

The specialists at ORA Orthopedics’ Foot & Ankle Center of Excellence take an individualized approach to heel spur treatment that focuses on what therapies best accommodate each patient’s unique needs. Depending on your specific condition and activity levels, your ORA doctor may suggest one or more of the following treatments:

  • Physical therapy
  • Stretching exercises
  • Orthotics or shoe inserts
  • Surgery, in severe cases
