Due to their daily labor of bearing our weight, our feet sustain a great deal of wear and tear. This causes a lot of issues that can hinder your freedom of movement. One of the most severe issues brought on by normal wear and tear is the development of bone spurs, a painful condition resulting from inflammation in the heel's back. If left untreated, bone spurs are a dangerous medical condition that necessitates surgery.
Stretching our feet several times a day and wearing comfy shoes are the best ways to avoid developing bone spurs. As we previously discussed, surgery is typically used to treat the condition, but there are a number of natural home remedies that can also be used.
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.
