Wat is hielspoor?

Overload, stress on the heel or the attaching tendons are causes of a heel spur. The symptoms of heel spur are mainly pain and stiffness under the heel. This pain usually appears when standing long or walking in the morning. This is because the nerves of a resting position are immediately set in motion. After a while, the nerves will become accustomed to the movement and the pain will decrease. The largest risk group is between 40 and 60 years old. It has also been found that women are relatively more likely to suffer from a heel injury than men. Athletes and people with a standing profession also belong to the risk group.

Heel spur can be treated in different ways. Stretching exercises, taking enough rest and wearing good shoes can in some cases reduce the symptoms.
