Understanding Orthopedic Treatments

Hey everyone, my name is Belinda. When I was a young girl, I injured the muscles in my legs performing complex gymnastic moves. I was under the care of an orthopedist for several months during the recovery period. I had to complete a number of strengthening exercises to regain my range of motion and mobility. The orthopedist performed regular examinations to determine if the given treatment was working. I will use this site to talk about different orthopedic treatments. I hope you will visit my site often to learn about this fascinating subject.

Options A Heel Pain Doctor Might Recommend When You Have Plantar Fasciitis With A Heel Spur

Heel pain is often caused by plantar fasciitis. This is an inflammation of the tissue that is on the bottom of your foot. In some cases, the heel pain of plantar fasciitis is made worse by a heel spur. A spur is an accumulation of calcium deposits on the bottom of the heel bone. The spur can act as a splinter that pokes and irritates the plantar fascia. This might feel like you're stepping on a sharp rock when you walk.
