heel spur

Posted by George C. on 12/29/03 at 10:29 (140848)

Was wandering what the odds were of having a heal spur in the rigt foot, & also if it could be caused from a tractor running over it in 1983 without breaking any bones.
Heard it was rare to have pain with it in the right foot none in the left foot.
Thanks for your time

I had PF only in one foot. How bad was the tractor injury? If it broke a lot of bones, it's possible it healed differently such that years later your walking step places weight in a different position. Nevertheless, worrying about that isn't going to help you now. Read lots of these posts to get helpful hints, and good luck.

Didn't break any bones during the accident. Just a lot of bruises & a ruptured spleen.
