I have heel bone spurs.

Oh man they hurt and they are hard to get rid of. You will need to stay off it for the heel to feel better. The are shoe inserts that can help. The padding can be cut in a circle releaving the pressure and pounding from walking.

The medically approved treatment of heel spurs starts with short term rest and anti-inflammatory medications. As the initial pain resolves the patient is usually taught a series of exercises to help prevent future pain and custom shoe inserts are made to protect the injured area.

Heel bone spurs need not be treated until they hurt us psychologically or physically. Weight loss (to reduce pressure on the heel), stretching exercises, well cushioned footwear, padding the shoe with heel cup are some of the remedies to heel bone spurs. Surgical removal can be done if there is heavy pain or any significant damage happens to the foot.
