There are a variety of ways that we can treat a bony growth on the bottom of your heel and one of the effective, conservative treatment methods is to use orthotics for heel spurs. When a heel spur has developed due to a biomechanical imbalance, these customized inserts can help correct the issue. It is important to note that these foot supports are not the same as the mass-produced shoe inserts that you can buy at retail stores and nationwide pharmacies. Those inserts can provide cushioning, and possibly arch support, but are not prescribed, medical devices that are created specifically for your feet.
When faced with the pain and discomfort that can accompany a heel spur, come see Dr. Jennifer Keller or any of the professional staff at Shenandoah Podiatry. We will examine your condition and determine the best course of treatment to eliminate the pain and discomfort. When we determine that orthotics will be effective at treating our clients, we customize them to make sure the problem is being addressed.
