Don’t let pain or the discomfort of heel spurs keep you off your feet when help is just a phone call away in Mississauga, ON.
Foot, ankle and calf pain and discomfort can quickly bench you from your favourite activities, and although many injuries can remedy themselves by staying off your feet for a few days, sometimes the pain is more persistent. In fact, inflammation of the Achilles tendon can lead to other conditions such as heel spurs, also known as bone spurs. At Heal Sports Medicine in Mississauga, ON, we recommend calling for an appointment if your discomfort continues more than a few days or the pain is intense.
One reason why we recommend this is because your pain may not be as simple as heel spurs. Since heel spurs do not always produce much pain, you could have something else going on. Your foot is a very complex part of your body, with numerous bones, muscles, tendons and ligaments. Although your feet are designed to handle almost all the rigours you put them through, they can scream out at you if abused a bit too much. Repetitive overuse, wearing high heels, having a hard stepping gait, and any other number of things can result in injury, inflammation and heel spurs, just to name a few conditions.
With appropriate treatment, we can make sure you enjoy a full recovery, so you can get back to doing the things you love, whether that is taking long walks on trails, zipping around the basketball court, or keeping up with your children or grandchildren. Don’t let pain or the discomfort of heel spurs keep you off your feet when help is just a phone call away.
