Heel spur at #9

Posted by Jim M. on 8/02/01 at 11:57 (055209)

Subject line reads like a popular song. Heel spur present on right outer edge of right heel. Approximate location from pf database would be #9. Hurts like the devil just from the weight of the foot when driving for extended periods. Walking getting more difficult. Does this location respond well to ESWT therapy?

It could respond very well. Need to determine the involvement of the achilles tendon . Do you have a restriction of motion at the ankle joint or a tight achilles. Tendon

No restrictions or involvement as far as I know. Pain is specific to the one point where the spur is located.

Dr. Z - what do you think? With the added info is ESWT a likely option?
