Heel Spur on back of heel

Posted by John R on 2/05/01 at 16:53 (038242)

I am requesting information on the best procedure to use to rid these bone spurs. The one on my left back heel protruds approximatley 1/2'. The one on my right back of heel is approximatley 1/4'. They both cause chronic pain and inability to wear most shoes. Please advise on best procedure to rid these spurs.

I would need more information. Do they cause pain only with shoes? Are the spurs within the Achilles Tendon. Can you give us more information about these spurs.
