A small osteophyte (bone spur) called a calcaneal spur, also known as a heel spur, is a growth that develops on the calcaneus (the heel bone).

A heel spur is a spur-shaped deformity that develops when calcium deposits pile up on the bottom of the heel bone as a result of repeated injury. Obese individuals, those with flat feet, and those who frequently wear high heels are most susceptible to heel spurs.

A posterior calcaneal spur develops on the back of the heel at the insertion of the A chilles tendon, and is typically a response to plantar fascilitis over time. An inferior calcaneal spur is located on the inferior aspect of the calcaneus, but may also be associated with ankylosing spondylitis (typically in children).

A posterior calcaneal spur, which is frequently large and palpable through the skin and may need to be removed as part of the treatment of insertional Achilles tendonitis, is also usually visible to the unaided eye. An inferior calcaneal spur is made up of a calcification of the calcaneus, which lies superior to the plantar fascia at the insertion of the plantar fascia.

Symptoms— The most common signs and symptoms include pain in the area around the spur, which usually gets worse after extended periods of rest, can make it difficult to bear weight on the affected heel comfortably, and may be made worse by running, walking, or lifting heavy objects.
