Our feet undergo a lot of wear and tear every day as they are responsible for supporting our weight. This leads to many problems which can make you unable to move freely. One of the biggest problems caused by the daily wear and tear are bone spurs, a condition caused by inflammation in the back of the heel which can be quite painful. Bone spurs are a serious medical problem which requires surgery if left untreated.
The best way to prevent bone spurs is to wear comfortable shoes and stretch our feet a few times a day. As we mentioned before, the condition is usually resolved surgically, but there are several homemade natural remedies that can treat it as well.
Here are the best remedies against bone spurs:
Orthopedic insoles have special areas where the foot can rest and will heal the condition faster. However, they must be used once the swelling has reduced.
Although applying ice directly on your skin is not a good idea as it may cause burns, wrapping ice cubes in a cloth and using them on the affected area can significantly reduce the inflammation and pain.
Massaging the bone spurs with some apple cider vinegar or lavender and rosemary essential oils can reduce the inflammation and pain.
Roll a bottle filled with icy water or pick up a towel with your toes a few times a day to rest your feet and reduce the pain caused by bone spurs.
