You can develop a heel spur if calcium has deposited under the heel bone. This can be an incredibly painful condition, making it difficult to walk or run without your heel causing problems. Some San Jose, CA patients have a heel spur that is so large, it can protrude out as much as half an inch. To treat heel spurs in our 95133 podiatry office, Leonard Greenwald, D.P.M. will often recommend that you wear special orthotics and do stretching exercises, along with resting your feet. If none of these solutions work, you may be required to visit a foot surgeon in order to address the problem. You can do so by calling (408) 827-9483.
