Heel Spurs often present as an ongoing dull ache affecting the area underneath the foot, close to the heel. It is usually worse in the mornings and can be seen on an xray.

I learnt how to alleviate the pain caused by this condition from my ballroom dance partner. She had passed it on from a physical therapist she knew who had used the techniques while treating runners.

Like so many things, the problem may not only be a local one, but has causes that are coming from other areas through mechanical connections.

Often the condition has been developing for some time, but with patience it can be alleviated and managed more effectively.
