channel today's video is again in

question that has been asked by one of

our subscriber so this video is asked by

George Poulos Kai please pardon me if I

am pronouncing this name wrongly so the

question that he has asked us I would

like to read his comment Meghna could

you please make a detailed video on

posterior heal bone spurs treatment I

have suffered for five years with left

posterior heals for I would be most

grateful many thanks to you Meghna thank

you George for asking this question so

in today's video we will go

more detail about what is posted in

calcaneal Hill spa again a very

complicated medical term so I would like

to simplify this and help you understand

what exactly this condition is and how

it can be managed

posterior heal bone spurs warrants in

medical term also called as calcaneal

spores is nothing but the position of

calcium in your heel bone cheese board

is basically located in the back side of

your foot the place where your heel

that's just the ground

Kevin Ian spurt is a bony outgrowth that

happens in this calcaneal tuberosity the

bone also called is the heel bone due to

unnecessary stress that comes on the

heels calcaneal spur leads to some kind

of imbalance and unevenness around the

heel region leading to experience of

pain but the scalp killing inspir itself

is not the cause of pain the cause of

pain is plantar fasciitis now again the

question arises what is plantar

fasciitis before answering this question

I would like to let you know what is

plantar fascia plantar fascia is

basically an fibrous and thick

connective tissue that lies on the sole

of your foot this plantar fascia is

responsible for maintaining the normal

arch or is the normal curve that you

have in your foot region now due to

unnecessary stress due to walking

running tourists due to wearing some

improper footwear there is lot of

pressure that comes and this leads to

over work of this plantar fascia this

leads to inflammation and swelling in

the plantar fascia region causing the

experience of pain so I would like to

break a myth here that mold spurs and

plantar fasciitis both are the same

thing it's not like that plantar

fasciitis is a totally different

condition and having in calcaneal spur

is also a totally different condition a

person who have calcaneus first is not

necessary that he or she will how

plantar fasciitis but this person is

more prone to develop plantar fasciitis

since this extra bolt or is this extra

calcium deposit that happens in the heel

bone leads to more pressure that comes

on the hill really causing inflammation

in the plantar fascia this

conditioned or as the heel pain is more

common among the people who are involved

in activities that involve lot of

long-standing job people who are

involved in sports like running jogging

badminton tennis and more prone to

develop plantar fasciitis even the

people who have long-standing jobs like

people who are working in a shopping

mall who have to stand for longer or

even traffic police who have to stand

for longer features who have to stand

for long words all these people are more

prone to develop Tranter fasciitis but

the good news is plantar fasciitis is

very easily manageable and how it is

managed we will talk about it in the

next section of this video

management of plantar fasciitis

comprises of two ways one method is the

conservative method and the second

method is the surgical method

conservative method as the name suggests

is the method where we try to manage the

pain related to plantar fasciitis with

the help of medication and physiotherapy

and even some supportive devices on the

contrary the surgical method is where

the problem is corrected with the help

of surgery although plantar fasciitis

has got a good effectiveness with the

help of conservative methods surgery is

very rarely done so let's dive deeper

into understanding what the conservative

management of ranter fish it is

comprised of plantar fascia it is all

calcaneus four can be managed with three

methods first there's the support what

do I mean by support here since there is

unnecessarily pressure and stress that

is happening on the healed region

extra support provided to the heal helps

in reducing that level of stress and

also prevents there further damage

silicone heel pads there are also

modified foot wears that are available

in the marketplace these products helps

in preventing and reducing the stress

that comes in the heel region after

stress the second thing that needs to be

focused on is maintaining good

flexibility around the heel muscles

ankle muscles and overall ache muscles

lack of flexibility is one of the

biggest reason you can experience pain

stiffness

some kind of discomfort in your

day-to-day activities

hence it is very imperative that a good

amount of flexibility exercises are

included in the exercise regime the

third thing that is important for the

conservative management is strengthening

of the muscles around the plantar region

and also the sole the heal the calf

region and overall like region if your

muscles are strong they will support

your bones and your joints and will

prevent you from getting any kind of

musculoskeletal aches and pains

hence it is imperative that you

incorporate exercise program in your day

to day routine sometimes steroid

injections are also used if the pain is

too much and patient is not able to bear

this pain apart from this in terms of

prevention and active lifestyle

preventive activities like swimming mile

jogging and low impact activities our

advice to the people who are having

plantar fasciitis or else calcaneus

first third most important thing that is

involved in preventing calcaneal Spurs

or is plantar fasciitis is Footwear

modification most of the time an

improper footwear is responsible for

development of the scalp aeneas worse or

even plantar fasciitis so a Footwear

modification where a Footwear is having

a good amount of support soft soles and

a very slight elevated heel helps in

preventing plantar fasciitis and

calcaneal sports now coming to a more

specific way what exercise that you can

do to prevent or manage the pain that is

associated with plantar fasciitis or

calcaneus for let's have a look the

first exercise is a plant or stretch the

idea we are doing this exercise

stretch the thigh plantar fascia which

is the cost often calcaneal pain all you

need to do is sit on the table or else a

chair unless you can do this exercise on

your bed as well and pull the sole of

your foot towards yourself you need to

hold this position for 30 pounds and

then collapse the reputation skin starts

from around 3 to maximum up to 5 the

next set of exercise is and calf stretch

the lower calf muscles are very tight

due to our day to day activities and

lack of exercise in order to perform

this exercise place your foot against

the wall or as any type or and stiff

surface now shift your body weight over

the leg which you are still gives the

wall hold this position or say around 30

pounds or as 30 seconds and then relax

you can do this up to 3 or 5 repetitions

[Music]

the next stretch is called as the

gastrocnemius stretch or it's the upper

half stretch the upper cuff muscles are

also a group of muscles who are more

prone to develop tightness it is very

important to stress this muscles

regularly so that they won't create any

undue pressure or stress on that country

in order to perform this exercise stand

against a wall place the foot or is the

leg that you want to stretch behind and

the foot or leg which you don't want to

stretch in front hold this position for

around 40 counts to maximum up to 60 to

1 and 60 seconds and then relax you can

do this for 3 repetitions for 3 times in

a day so friends these were the top

three important exercises that can help

in reducing the pain to let it to

calculate its cause for plantar fascia
