A heel spur can become a real disaster. This tiny calcium clot near the base of your heel bone can cause a lot of discomfort during walking or running. Approximately 50 percent of people with heel spurs have pain from them. You can’t actually see it on your heel because it’s normally about a quarter of an inchin length. Getting rid of this irritating problem is not that easy and takes some effort.
1. Apply a cold compress on a heel spur.
Don’t ignore foot pain and try to take care of your feet at home. After applying a cold compress you will feel relief from heel spurs immediately. The cold helps to reduce the pain very fast, but won’t last as long as if you took medication.
If you don’t have a cold compress on hand, you can take an ice cube and wrap it in a cloth to make one.
