A heel spur refers to a condition characterized by a pointed bony outgrowth of the calcaneus bone, the bone of the heel.
The outgrowth of the bone, also called osteophytes, is attributed to the repeated trauma or chronic local inflammation at the site of insertion of the soft tissues like tendons and fascia in the part. It is usually a highly painful condition. The use of ayurvedic heel spur natural treatment may offer help to provide relief from the pain and other symptoms. 
Heel spurs are usually located under the heel, or at the back of the heel. The heel spurs occurring at the back of the heel are usually associated with tendinitis or inflammation of the Achilles tendon. It causes pain and tenderness at the back of the heel, which often becomes worse while pushing the ball of the foot.
The heel spurs formed under the sole of the foot or the plantar area are usually associated with plantar fasciitis. The pain caused due to this condition can also hamper the ability of the patients to move about thus causing significant hindrance to their daily routine.
Causes of Heel Spurs or Plantar Fasciitis
Heel spurs or Plantar Fasciitis are commonly caused due to a strain injury of the tissues and tendons that attach to the calcaneus or the heel bone. It can occur after a chronic, repetitive athletic strain or stress injury.
The heel spurs can also occur due to the inflammatory diseases, such as reactive arthritis, diffuse idiopathic skeletal hyperostosis or ankylosing spondylitis. The incidence of heel spurs is higher in the people above 40 years of age. The factors that can increase the likelihood of developing heel spur include:

Shallaki (Boswellia serrata): Shalaki is commonly used in the ayurvedic treatments as anti-inflammatory agent, which may also possesses analgesic properties, and can help to provide relief from the pain over the time.
