Characteristics of Heel Spurs and their cause

A heel spur is a bony protuberance on the torus process of the heel bone (calcaneus). It is an osteophyte (bony protuberance), which results from the pull of tissues that are attached to this process.

Heel spurs are accompanied by severe pain, which worsens with time. It can be recognized through x-ray or ultrasound examination in the initial stages when pain starts manifesting.

Pain felt after landing on one’s heel caused by heel spur is suffered by 15% of the population. Most commonly by middle-aged people.

What are the most common causes of heel spur?

  • Repeated and long-term strain on the legs,
  • inappropriate footwear,
  • foot deformities,
  • injuries,
  • rheumatic disease.

Heel spur treatment – rid yourself of the pain

Treatment of the heel spur is usually conservative. Physiotherapy, local injection of corticoids, ultrasound or laser therapy are applied. Pain is usually regulated by non-steroid anti-rheumatics. The fundamental point of treatment is to change footwear.

Another method is to to remove the heel spur either by applying shock wave therapy or surgical intervention.

Heel spur treatment via Chinese medicine involves a combination of acupuncture and herbal treatment, or alterations to diet.

Application of 3D Biomag pulse therapy is an important part of heel spur treatment.

Explanation of chosen terms:

  • Osteophyte – bony protuberance.
  • Non-steroid anti-rheumatics – non-steroid medicament that supresses pain, fever and inflammation.

Patented 3D Biomag pulsed therapy. How does it work?

The basic principle of 3D Biomag magnetotherapy is generating electromagnetic pulses. The generated pulses penetrate through layers of clothing and even body tissues to the place of application. These pulses have specially developed biotropic parameters (e.g. frequency, profile, intensity), thanks to which the pulsed magnetotherapy affects various health conditions.

The term pulse magnetotherapy is most commonly used for physiotherapy using the principle of electromagnetic pulses. The abbreviation PEMF is used in order to be concise.

Patented 3D Biomag technology ensures more precise and uninterrupted pulse profiles, enhances output, and allows pulses to come from various angles. This makes it a completely new and unique medical technology on the market.

What are the benefits of treatment for heel spur?

  • Helps soothe pain.
  • Has an analgesic, anti-inflammatory and anti-oedematous effect.
  • Healing effect is employed.
  • Thanks to being easy to use, it can be applied at home.
  • It’s a solution with no additional medicaments.

University hospital Na Bulovce, Prague – Physiotherapy department

We have been utilising pulse magnetic field treatment in our spa for more than 10 years. We use Biomag devices for both physiotherapy and spa treatment. It is very advantageous to combine magnetotherapy with other physiotherapy methods because the effect of magnetotherapy potentiates with other methods (analgesic, anti-oedematous, recovery and myorelaxing).

Martin Król, Praha

It's hard to describe all the problems I'm using the device for, but I've completely eliminated the pain of the right heel - spurs, elbow and hip-joint pains.

Jiří Šidlo, Děpoltovice

I tried magnetotherapy for joints and for teeth inflammation with excellent results. Husband used the device for spurs on his heels, the pain receded. Magnetotherapy has a wide application, we feel fresh and have a greater taste for life.
