I developed a heel spur from running not too long ago. Got some great advice here. Have since found out that a certain stretch seems to help prevent them... Stand in a lunge position. While balancing over your front bent knee, bend your back knee while keeping your heel on the floor. Hold. Basically, I believe it is a separation of tissue from the bone on the bottom of your foot. Good shoes, stretching out and, if needed, take a break from high impact sports until it heals.

CO-- E-mail me for more info (I can send a nice paper your way from my Biomechanics class). Basically, there is a long ligament that connects the bottom front part (more to the inside of your foot) to the balls of your feet. (Medial process of the Calcaneous to the metatarsal heads). In some foot types, the ligament (Plantar Fascia) gets stretched excessively. The weakest spot is where it joins the heel bone, so it can tear and/or become very irritated there. The "heel spur" may or may not develop--it is just the bone at the bottom front of your heel reacting to the irritation on the ligament (it grows forward a little bit). The spur is not usually the cause of the pain. It is actually the ligament being stretched. Do you have pain on the bottom of your foot in the morning when you first get out of bed, and it goes away after walking for a while? Or, after sitting with no weight on your foot for an extended period of time? These are cardinal signs of plantar fascitis. More info via e-mail if you want/need it. AFARR

They are small U-shaped metal cuffs that strap onto boots that protrude from the back with a free spinning gear like wheel attached on the end. The "teeth" on the gear are elongated and are used to rake across a horses belly to "spur" them to run faster. At least thats what we use them for in Texas. Michael

Capt. BETAC feeling some pain. The thought is positively intoxicating. Maybe that's where his conscience is hiding[smoke]

What do you want this time? I can not accept you as a student. I have my hands full instructing Captain Obvious. We masters can only spread ourselves so thin.
