heel spur?

Posted by Kim on 9/15/02 at 17:10 (095374)

I have been having plantar fascia for about a year and a half now. The orthodics have helped a lot but I still have pain and tightness in the well known area of the heel that is associated with the condittion. I am wondering if I have a spur. How do you tell? Is it treat able?

The only way you can tell if you have a spur is by an x-ray. It sounds liek you need to start stretching regardless of whether a spur is found
