Calcaneal spur is just a bony outgrowth from the calcaneal tuberosity, calcaneal spur also called heel spur, it a calcium deposit causing bony protrusion on the underside of the heel bone.

When a foot is exposed to constant stress,it leads to calcium deposits on the bottom of the heel bone.

  • Athletic activities-running and jumping can wear down the heel and arch of the foot.
  • Activity on hard surface-frequent walking ,running,or jumping on hard surfaces can wear down the heel.
  • Trauma to the heel-repeated injury ,bruising and tearing the membrane that covers it can lead to heel spurs.
  • Getting older:common in old age

  • Being overweight: in obese persond the risk of developing of calcaneal spur is high.
