Dr. Z Question and need email address

Dr. Z.

I've had 2 ESWT treatments and will have my 3rd one done soon. A question that I have is that could a heel spur cut into the plantar fascia and reinjure the area? It seem very painful to be barefoot - out of necessity, when changing shoes, sandals, etc. I don't make a habit out of going w/o shoes or sandals, but wonder if that is the case. Also, after not doing leg and calf work in the gym after laying off for sometime - it seems that a spur could 'dig in' the fascia when doing leg press(heel down) and calf raises. Could this be true or am I overanalyzing things.
