Heel spur

A heel spur is a calcium deposit in the heel bone that can cause pain when walking or standing. It develops due to repetitive stress on the plantar fascia, the tissue that connects the heel to the toes. Treatment generally involves conservative measures such as rest, ice and stretching, however, Dr. Orlando Díaz, specialist in Orthopedics and Traumatology, is the ideal person to help us better understand this problem and how to manage it.
