Heel Spur. A heel spur or bone spur is a bony growth that pokes out from the bottom of your heel, where your heel bone connects to the ligament running between your heel and the ball of your foot (the plantar fascia). If you're feeling pain on the bottom of your foot near your heel, you may have a heel spur.

They can be caused by repetitive activities, such as dancing or running, or they can form in association with plantar fasciitis. Symptoms are usually worse with running or walking and improve. The much more common form is formed from the lower, front edge of the heel bone along the sole of the foot towards the toes (plantar heel spur).

Although many people with plantar fasciitis have heel spurs, spurs are not the cause of plantar fasciitis pain. A heel spur won’t trouble you unless it is prominent beneath your foot, and you can feel it under the skin. Symptoms are usually worse with running or walking and improve. A heel spur (calcaneal spur) is a thornlike bone outgrowth on the heel.
