Asked 2 years ago
Hi, I've recently been told I have a 6mm heel spur. Always sore, just different degrees of pain! Any suggestions for relief, exercises? Will it get better? Might insoles or orthotics help? Thanks

Foot flexes, and stretches can help relieve heel spur pain. There are also over-the-counter medicines that may help. You could put ice on the area, massage it, or use night splints. Some doctors recommend cortisone injection, ESWT therapy, or even surgery. One thing you can do immediately is to get custom orthotic insoles for extra cushioning and support.

For a home remedy, you can follow some routines like regular stretches. Calf stretches or foot flexes might relieve the pain. On the other hand, you can apply an ice bag at least twice a day. If it is still not enough then high-quality orthotic insoles can help. Insoles are proven to lessen such heel spur pain.
