Heel Spurs Surgery
Heel Spur Pain (Plantar Fasciitis) is due to a ligament pulling off your heel bone causing pain, especially in the morning.
The pain is severe after sitting for a while and getting up again.
The pulling may or may not lead to a bone spur being present on x-rays. The pain can be on the inside, outside or middle of your heel.
There are other conditions that may mimic plantar fasciitis, so consult with your doctor before starting treatment.
