Heel Spurs & Bone Spurs

As a result of rubbing, friction or repetitive stress on the bones within a joint, the body may attempt to make the problem more tolerable by growing a bone spur at the affected site. Also known as osteophytes, bone spurs commonly grow in joints and on the heel, and often come as a result of osteoarthritis.

Potential treatments include: Manual therapy, home-based exercises, active motion restoring exercise, Class IV laser, electrical stimulation, phonophoresis (medicated ultrasound), and vibration electric stimulation (Hivamat 200) with passive motion and iontophoresis to diminish size of spurring.
