Heel spurs, also known as plantar fasciitis, is a chronic pain of the heel and arch due to inflammation on the bottom of the foot. The plantar fascia is the connective tissue that stretches from the base of the toes across the arch of the foot back to the heel. Heel spurs are commonly caused by overpronation, or an excessive inward rolling of the foot when walking. When additional tension is added to the plantar fascia, it becomes inflamed and leads to chronic pain when walking or standing.

Treatment for heel spurs and plantar fasciitis include the use of anti-inflammatory medication, icing the affected area, stretching exercises, orthotic devices and physical therapy.
