Causes of Bone Spurs in the FeetWhen your feet are repeatedly exposed to excessive pressure and stress, a bone spur can form as a result of the body’s normal response to repair itself. The following activities and conditions are also common causes of bone spurs in the feet:
- High-impact activities, such as running
- Excessive weight
- Poor-fitting footwear
- Tightening of the plantar fasciitis due to excessive stress
Identifying the cause of your bone spur, such as poor-fitting shoes or weight gain, is often times enough to reduce the pressure that is causing the pain.
Conservative treatments for bone spurs include:
- Change in footwear
- Weight loss
- Padding or insoles
- Deep tissue massage and stretching
