How to prevent the formation of a heel spur?

It is essential to find out the exact cause of abnormal elongation of the plantar fascia to properly treat a heel spur. If flat feet are the cause, orthotics with rearfoot posting and longitudinal support to the arch is very helpful in healing. Stretching exercises, wearing correct footwear with better cushion for the heels that provide shock absorption, use of a heel cradle or heel cup to elevate the heel are also common methods of treatment. Cradles and cups to the heel give additional comfort and diminish the shock and force to heel from daily activities.
