Heel Spurs and Plantar Fasciitis

Sometimes heel spurs and plantar fasciitis can be confused with each other. Doctor Gabe Rodriguez here, and today I want to speak to those of you in Sioux Falls who are struggling with foot pain about these common disorders.

A heel spur occurs when the plantar fascia muscle becomes so irritated that extra bone begins to form on the heel. Plantar fasciitis is the actual inflammation of the plantar fascia muscle. Both can be quite agonizing, but are very treatable.
