Exercises against problems with heel spurs

Are you troubled by pain in the area of your heel and its close surrounding? In order to diagnose the heel spur it is necessary get an X-ray image or use medical ultrasound. In case of heel spur, it is absolutely necessary to relax your calf muscles as well as your feet muscles, which are the reason why the heel spur forms.

We recommed to regularly stretch your muscles, massage your feet, take relaxing baths, warm compresses for relieving the tension (in acute phase of the ininflammation do not apply warm compress, so that you would not aggravate the condition of the inflammatory process). Good helper in the care for your feet can be also foam ball or massaging ball with little spikes. Very comfortable is also when you massage your feet with your own hands, with simple mobilizing techniques of the small joints.

When we overload the ligamentous system of the foot, in the area of the heel bone, it can lead to oxidation of the tissue, the intake of nutrients is restricted as well as the outflow of the waste substances from the affected area. It can lead to "chemical" inflammation - inflammation as a result of insufficient amount of nutrients in the soft tissues. This type of inflammation, commonly described as a "heel spur", is manifesting with pain in the heel and in the surrounding area.
