Dissolve your Heel Spurs – Top 7 Homeopathic medicines for calcaneal Spur and Heel Pain

Homeopathic medicines for Calcaneal Spurs

Pain in the heel not only restricts movement, but the general discomfort while walking or on standing affects the personality of a person. The pain can be attributed to a medical condition known as Calcaneal Spur/ heel spur. It refers to a sharp, pointed, horny outgrowth on the calcaneal bone present in the heel. The main symptom of Calcaneal Spur is pain in the heel around the the spur.

Homeopathic Treatment

Homeopathic medicines offer a very safe and complete treatment of Calcaneal Spur. The homeopathic medicines for Calcaneal Spur are made of natural substances and have no side effects. They are very strong and powerful in treating the condition.  Homeopathic medicines, which are completely safe to use, help in both, relieving the pain in heels due to spur and in dissolving the spur, thus providing complete treatment for Calcaneal Spurs.

Top Homeopathic Medicines for Calcaneal Spur

Calcarea Fluor, Aranea Diadema, Ruta, Rhus Tox are the top remedies for Calcaneal Spur.

1. Calcarea Fluor – Best Medicine For Dissolving Calcaneal Spur

Though there are several homeopathic medicines to dissolve heel spur, but Calcarea Fluor tops the list. It is a natural medicine with the best healing power to dissolve a Calcaneal Spur. This remedy is of great help in all cases of Calcaneal Spur whether painful or not. Calcarea Fluor acts as the best resolving agent for Calcaneal Spur and is considered the first choice of remedy in every case of Calcaneal Spur. Not only heel bone, this medicine is equally suitable to dissolve spurs in any bone in the body. This medicine is also indicated for extra bony outgrowths that tend to form after an injury.

2. Aranea Diadema – For Heel Spur With Boring Pain In Heel

Aranea Diadema is the next best medicine for Calcaneal Spur. This remedy is best for getting rid of digging and boring type of pain in the heel. The pain initially aggravates on moving the feet but is relieved after continued movement. The pain may alternate with a feeling of numbness in the heel. Extreme sensitivity to cold air can also be predominantly present.

3. Ruta – For Heel Spur Formed After Stressed Ligaments, Muscles And Tendons

Ruta works well in cases where ligaments, muscles and tendons are repeatedly stressed following which bone spurs gets formed. It is indicated by a shooting pain in the heel. The pain from heel radiates to the Achille’s tendon. The tendon that connects the calf muscle present in the back of the leg to heels is known as Achille’s tendon also known as Tendo Achilles. For patients who have pain in the heel due to Calcaneal Spur with the extension of pain in Tendo Achilles, the best remedy for relief is Ruta.

4. Rhus Tox – For Heel Pain On Stepping (Putting Pressure On Feet To Begin Walk)

Rhus Tox is the top natural remedy for pain in the heel felt when stepping on foot. It gets worse from standing. If pain in the heel troubles you on the first standing in the morning, Rhus Tox is the best medicine. The person needing it feels as if he/she is stepping on a pin with the first step taken, though pain gets better by continuous walking. Rhus Tox also helps in repairing the muscles and ligaments covering the heel bone, thus preventing further heel damage.

Its other action is to dissolve the spur. Rhus Tox thus acts in three spheres for Calcaneal Spur patients — pain relief, strengthening the muscles or ligaments, and dissolving the spur. The pain experienced by the person on standing is most of the times stitching in character. The person may feel the pain as being similar to that caused by a splint. Another expression used may be sharp pain as from a nail under the skin.

5. Ammonium Mur — For Pain In Heel On Walking

Ammonium Mur is a very beneficial natural medicine for Calcaneal Spur. This remedy is of great help when pain in the heel is felt on walking due to Calcaneal Spur. Ammonium Mur helps in decreasing the pain as well as dissolving the spur. Apart from specific worsening of pain on walking, the person also complains of pain in the heel in the morning. A few people needing Ammonium Mur may get relief by slight rubbing of the heel. The pain may be stitching, tearing or ulcerative in nature.

6. Aurum Met – For Calcaneal Spur Which Causes Pain At Night

The pain in the heel at night due to Calcaneal Spur is best relieved by natural remedy Aurum Met. It is a very appropriate and efficient homeopathic medicine to get rid of pain in the heel at night arising because of the spur.

 7. Mezereum – For Calcaneal Spur That Hurts By Touching

For patients complaining of pain in the heel spur when touched, natural medicine Mezereum is the best remedy. Mezereum is of great help in treating the heel spur pain that worsens by touching. The patient may show increased sensitivity to cold air.

8. Pulsatilla – For Heel Pain Like From Pricking From An Iron Nail

This natural medicine works well when a person feels pain in the heel as from pricking from an iron nail. There is inability to walk barefoot. Heels feel sore, pain gets worse with walking. Heel pain tends to increase in evening.

Symptoms Of Heel Spur

1. Heel spur mainly leads to sharp pain in the heel.The pain arises from injury in the soft tissue in the heels caused by bony spur. Thepain gets worse when a person steps on the ground after a period of inactivity, especially in the morning following long rest. The pain increases while walking, running and standing. The character of pain may be described as sharp pain, dull pain or pain as from pin-pricking.

2. Heel may be inflamed, swollen and warm to touch

3. Heel may be tender to touch

4. In long term cases, a bony growth may be visible on heel

5. However in some cases, there may be no symptoms

Cause Behind Heel Spur

The bony outgrowth is the build-up of calcium deposit on the heel bone. Heel spur forms when excessive stress and strain is put repeatedly on ligaments, muscles, tendons, fascia of the foot.  Due to repeated stress and strain, there is damage to muscles, ligaments, tendons and plantar fascia (a band of tissue connecting heel bone to base of toes) that cover the heel bone. As a result, the heel bone is also stressed and becomes prone to trauma and formation of Calcaneal Spur. A single stressful episode on the heel like from a sports activity does not cause heel spur. These develop with repeated stress put on the heel over a period of time.

Risk Factors For Heel Spur

1. Recurrent stress on the heel from walking, jumping, jogging, running especially on hard surface is the main risk factor

2. People who are either obese or athletic are prone to develop Calcaneal Spur

3. Having Plantar Fasciitis (inflamed plantar fascia) increases risk of developing heel spurs

4. Wearing high heels and ill-fitted or worn-out shoes also puts a person at risk of formation of calcium deposits on the heel bone.

5. Having arthritis (joint inflammation), flat feet, diabetes and gait issues (it affects balance and coordination as a result of which the sufferer is unable to walk correctly) also puts a person at risk of heel spur

Are Heel Spurs And Plantar Fasciitis Same?

Heel spur and Plantar Fasciitis are often confused because both cause heel pain but both these conditions are not the same. Heel spur is calcium deposit that forms a bony outgrowth on heel bone. Plantar Fasciitis is a condition where the plantar fascia (a tissue band that connects heel bone to the base of toes) is irritated and swollen. Plantar Fasciitis increases the risk of heel spurs.

Diagnosis Of Heel Spur

Heel spur causes heel pain that may arise from other reasons as well (for example Plantar Fasciitis, gout, arthritis) and heel spur is not visible from outside, when we look at the heel, so it is difficult to confirm diagnosis only on the basis of symptoms.

X-ray is the most commonly used investigation to detect a heel spur.

Measures To Prevent Heel Spurs

1. Select soft surfaces to run or jog rather than hard surface

2. Wear properly fitted shoes that support heels well

3. Avoid wearing high-heeled shoes as much as possible

4. Try to lose weight if obese to reduce the pressure on the foot

5. If possible, avoid standing for long time periods
