What is heel spur?

Medical taping helps with heel spurs. But what exactly is heel spurs? With heel spurs you suffer from pain under your heel. Your heel spur was probably caused by too long or too much tension on the tendon under your foot. This can be the result of too much or too little exercise. This pain is especially pronounced when you stand or walk. Very annoying, because you can't enjoy your daily walk through the woods or that run that you enjoy so much. 

Even if you have slept wonderfully and just wake up and get up, you can experience a lot of pain. This way you will be awake immediately, because there is a good chance that it will feel like your foot is being stabbed with sharp knives. Doesn't sound nice and it definitely isn't.

What works against pain under your heel?

Heel spurs can last for quite a few months. For quick relief of your pain, we can recommend medical taping. Furthermore, it is extremely important that you wear the right shoes. These shoes must fit your feet exactly, so that your feet are properly supported. It is also important that you do not walk or stand too much in a row. Exercise is healthy, but too much exercise is not good either. At such moments you will notice that you experience extra pain.
