Is an inflammation of the heel due to an extension or calcification of bone in the bottom of the heel. This calcification is produced by the body weight on the heel every time we take a step, causing the arch of the foot muscles to over-stretch and create the spur. This problem causes severe pain when standing up and is especially common in obese individuals or those who spend most of their time standing.

You can reduce the pain with the use of special inserts, anti-inflammatory injections or by surgery.
