Insoles for Heel Spurs

Heel spurs are caused when calcium deposits develop under the heel bone.  Often associated with plantar fasciitis, heel spurs can be quite painful.  Heel spurs are common for athletes but can be present in individuals needing extra arch support, the overweight, those who stand on their feet all day, and the elderly.  Insoles for heel spurs typically seek to cushion the heel and/or support the arch to reduce inflammation.
