Heel Spurs = Plantar Fasciitis Page 2 of 2
i have copied the following information from the above posts itself. On the basis of that information i suggest you take BIO_CHEMIC - Cal.Flour-6X + Silicea-12X. Four tablets each. Four times daily for seven days. Report your response here after 7 days. It has helped ahmedbayat so it may help you. For taking bio-chemic one need not individulise that much as one needs for taking a homeo remedy.

Absolutely-- steer clear of 200c potency -- too high for this type of problem.

Thank you very, very much for prescribing Cal. Fluor + Silicea which I've been taking and there is a marked improvement. I think that in another week or so the spurs would have disappeared.God bless you.Best regards Ahmed

Actually per my homeopath advise i am now taking
Once in 4days Antim Crud
and in between 4days morning and evening i am taking Arnica.
My Homeapath advised the heel spur will dissolve and i am hoping as well.
The main concern with my heel spur is while taking this medicine i feel better but with by excessive sports it gets worse..so now i am trying to slow down until this treatment is completed.

P.F. responds to all the things listed below. Do them every day after the first 2 weeks of more intensive treatment. Do everything you can to avoid needing surgery.
I really hope I can help you because I know how bad it is. I spent 2 years in pain because the G.P. had no idea and the first Podiatrist wasn't very good. Now I would love to share everything and the most up to date Physios and Surgeons agree with this.
If possible - first go to an experienced Podiatrist or an experienced Sports Physiotherapist.
For the first 2 weeks: You might try to get as much rest as possible while taking anti-inflammatories every day, icing once per hour plus doing all the other things. In those two weeks use crutches as well.
Homeopathics can use an alternative to anti-inflammatories.
Rest - Use crutches
Ice- Keep a bag of frozen peas nearby. Place your bare foot on them for 10 minutes at least 3 times a day.
Massage- This will hurt a lot but do it. Press you foot down hard on a golf ball or frozen bottle of water and roll back and forth. You must use a strong downwards force to massage the plantar fascia (it is a long tight band on the underside of your foot.) Eventually, after weeks, it will hurt less and less as the plantar fascia is massaged to be more flexible.
Stretching- Sit on floor or bed with legs outstretched. Place a long band or wide fabric belt around the balls of your toes and pull your toes towards you to stretch the plantar fascia. Hold for a second and repeat 10 times. Do this before getting out of bed.
Wear a Strassburg sock in bed. This keeps the plantar fascia stretched all night. If it is not stretched it will tighten up and be very sore in the morning. You can make one yourself.
Keep your calf muscles stretched.
Stretch your Achilles.
1. Stand. One foot at a time - balance on one foot, rise up on the balls of your toes slowly and go back down. Repeat 10 times each foot. Then repeat it all until you can do 30.
2.Write the alphabet in the air or on the floor with your big toe. Repeat.
Course of Anti-inflammatories.
Strapping (done by a podiatrist or a physio experienced in Plantar Fasciitis.)
Orthotics - you can buy ready made ones for plantar fasciitis. They should be hard, not silicone. Or get one custom made from a podiatrist in case you might need to.
Lace Up Shoes with soles with good cushioning and a sole that has strengthening from the ball of your foot to the rounded part of your heel on the underside of your foot. (so approx. along 3/5ths of the sole.) must have a semi rigid sole so that your feet don't move around.
Buy shoes with room for orthotics. Good quality runners are good.
If all this doesn't help after a few months, consider: Ultra-sound Guided Cortisone Injection and Autologous Blood Injections (a few drops of your own blood injected into the most painful inflamed area of the heel.) This must be done by a surgeon.

A heel spur occurs because of the long term inflammation which is happening while your plantar fasciitis is beginning to become a painful problem.
The small point of pain in your heel on the underside of your foot is the place where the plantar fascia ligament is stretching and pulling, it's not from the (calcious/bony) heel spur.
This website is really good. She has written all the things I would recommend.
I have P.F. which is slowly getting better. It was so bad I was screaming and yelling (half strength yelling !!)
When I keep doing all the things listed above, I am better and can walk around at work and at home.
But, I still can't walk fast or walk for exercise or go bush walking.
This website is really good. She wrote about it in 2012 including all the things I would recommend.
