What is a Heel Spur?

According to Wolff's Law, our bones adapt to stresses by remodeling and changing. Heel spurs can form from too much pulling on the heel bone (calcaneus) from ligaments or tendons. If the Achilles tendon is pulling too tightly to the back (posterior) of the heel bone, a bone spur will form. If the plantar fascia is pulling too tightly on the heel bone, a bone spur will form.
