Calcium-D for Heel Spur

Posted by Ghasem on 9/17/02 at 03:36 (095511)

Hi there,
My doctor has prescribed Calcium D tablets (as well as some anti-inflammatory ones) for my heel pain (I have heel spur). My question is whether these calcium tablets will be of any help or may be harmful?

Thanx a lot,
Ghasem

Hopefully the doctors here will have some thoughts on this and if so I'll be interested to hear what they say.
Meanwhile, I think the Heel Pain Book on this website mentions some supplements such as manganese or something like that.

I am not aware of any direct benefit of clacium supplementation for heel spur syndrome.
