Heel Spur

Posted by Arlen R on 3/24/02 at 15:57 (077416)

I have heard that after surgery on heel spurs the put casts on your feet, I would like to find out if this is true, and maybe approx. the length it has to stay on if put on.
Thank You

Some due and some don't . It will depend on whether you have miminial incision heel spur surgery. If you have open heel spur surgery you will have a cast or cast boot. Have you heard of ESWT . This is the non-invasive non surgical procedure . We have been using ESWT for the past two years with great sucess.
