Heel spurs are one of the most common causes of heel pain and are often associated with a lot of discomforts during jumping, walking or running. However, getting rid of it is not simple and takes some effort. Can orthotics help?
Well, the answer is a yes but before digging deeper, it is important to understand what causes heel spurs in the first place. Heel spurs can be caused by muscle or ligament strain. The heel and ball of the foot are connected by a long band of tissue. Heel spurs occur when the band is overstretched.
Heel spurs orthotics cushion, support, lift, and physically re-stretch the plantar fascia ligament of the foot while applying acupressure to stop the pain. They also support the heel bone and prevent the arch from collapsing during walking, running or jumping.
So, orthotic inserts can reduce and treat heel spurs, eliminating the need for costly and often painful medical interventions. For more information on the best insoles for heel spurs, contact PTI Orthotics in Boulder and Longmont for personalized assistance.
