Heel Spurs-will They Go Away?

is surgery the only option for heel spurs? will they go away on its own?

Answer

You might want to check out the explanation in Health Central. Yes there are several options for heel spurs; heat, insoles, ultrasound, diathermy and surgery. Heel spurs are caused by calcification of the tendons where they attach to the heel and become inflamed causing pain. They can be 'broken up' to some extent by the methods above. Surgery is the treatment of last resort; first try the other ones - they do fix them for some people.
