Heel pain including plantar fasciitis and bone spurs are one of the most common complaints seen in the foot.
In order to feel the plantar fascial ligament, with one hand bend the big toe upwards, run your finger from your other hand along the bottom of the foot, you will feel a large cord like structure that runs from the ball of your foot to your heel. Many women who suffer from plantar fasciitis will tell me that their heel feels better when they are in high heels. Pain in the heel when they first stand up after getting up in the morning or after being seated for a long period of time. When there is excessive inflammation particularly at the insertion of the ligament into the heel bone, calcification can occur and you end up with what is routinely known as a heel spur which is the classic bone spur in the foot. Additionally, when the pain in the heel seems to worsen the more you ambulate other problems may be present.

A heel neuroma, which is simply a pinched nerve that gets entrapped in the area of inflammation. It is essential that a well-trained foot specialist be consulted to rule out the cause of the heel pain. Making the right diagnosis and eliminating the factors aggravating the heel pain are essential in alleviating the problem.
I had been experiencing extreme heel and sole pain for about six months and had to take extended breaks off my feet many times a day as well as regular doses of Ibuprofen. This large version of the Silipos Heel Spur with Removable Plug is a firm, shock absorbing heel cup manufactured using top of the range medical grade biomechanical silicone. The fat is supposed to act as a cushion, but some people either do not have enough fat, or as we age we lose some of the fat, and now the heel bone becomes bruised because there is not enough fat to protect it.

To alleviate pressure around the heel the user can wear the heel cup with the plug out, and for superior heel shock absorption the heel cup can be worn with the plug in. In fact, in this day and age, seeing a heel spur on x-ray, does not change my treatment plan for any given patient. This Silipos Heel Spur is suitable for use within all shoe styles can be used by most people as they are latex free and hypoallergenic. These are the large Silipos Heel Spurs with Removable Plug, a smaller size is also available in this section of the website.
