Calcaneous Spur


A calcaneal spur (or heel spur) is a small osteophyte (bone spur) located on the calcaneus (heel bone). Calcaneal spurs are typically detected by a radiographic examination (commonly referred to as an "x-ray"). When a foot bone is exposed to constant stress, calcium deposits build up on the bottom of the heel bone.
