Foot pain treatment

Heel and arch pain

Plantar Fasciitis

Did you know your foot has 28 bones, 30 muscles, 21 joints and 107 ligaments?

Plantar fasciitis or Lenoir’s spine syndrome is the most common heel injury. It is the lesion of an essential ligament under the foot that ensures the proper functioning of the arch.

It can occur following a recognized trauma, improper functioning of the feet, be the result of poor postural alignment and/or wearing ill-fitting shoes. The pain is usually felt during the first steps in the morning and after a period of inactivity. It decreases with walking. Heel pain is frequently difficult to eliminate due to the daily use of our feet.

Lenoir spur

A Lenoir spur is the result of a deposit of calcium at the insertion site of the ligament into the bottom of the heel bone. We can detect the presence of a spur (outgrowth/calcaneum) using x-rays. It usually occurs when the band of fibrous tissue under the foot undergoes excessive and chronic stress.

The Lenoir spur itself is not painful, however it predisposes the rupture of the plantar fascia leading to inflammation and pain.
