I have a heel spur. Do I need to have it removed?

No. Most people who have heel pain caused by a “heel spur” do not need surgery. The reason being that there is a ligament-like structure on the bottom of the foot that courses the arch and connects into the heel. At times, this tissue (which is termed the plantar fascia), becomes inflamed. As a result, there is an inflammatory process which the body calcifies creating a heel spur. The pain comes first, the spur comes later, and the spur generally does not cause the pain. It is important to remember that there are many people who have heel pain without a spur and plenty of people who have heel spurs, but no pain. Our 1Foot 2Foot podiatrists can show you how heel pain can be treated without surgery. You should know that heel pain is one of the most common foot ailments, and 95% of those who obtain treatment for plantar fasciitis go on to full recovery without the need for surgery.

  • “I've been both a patient of 1Foot 2Foot with Dr. Dairman and a client at Stems Spa. I can honestly say - WOW! I never thought I'd be proud to show my feet until now. Dr. D. fixed by heel pain and a pretty bad bunion. I can barely see the scar! The pedicures are simply amazing - AND CLEAN! Proud to have them in Suffolk! Thanks guys.”

  • “I purchased many Dr. Scholl's supports, went to an orthopedic who sent me to therapy. Six months later I was no better. A friend told me about 1Foot 2Foot and Dr. Dairman. Within 2 weeks I was back to my activities with little pain. Within 4 weeks, I'm pain-free. How he did it, I don't know, but I now send all my friends and family to 1Foot 2Foot.”

  • “I was greeted by a friendly receptionist, taken back promptly by a friendly assistant, and seen by a podiatrist who was comfortable, confident, and yes, friendly. He explained my problem (neuroma), offered several treatment options and said with a smile "I can fix that." He gave me a steroid injection and I left his office without pain. I haven't had pain since.”

  • “Almost 4 months after surgery and all is still well. On Monday of this week I had 4 patients of my own to see in our outpatient surgery department. I went up and down the flight of stairs to surgery a total of 9 times that day. Was I tired at the end of the day? You bet! Did my foot and heel give me any problems? None at all!!!! Thanks again for pain free walking.”
