heel spurs-how to cure

I have horrible pain in my heel and suspect it is spurs-any cure?

  • Rest as much as possible for at least a week.
  • Apply ice to the painful area. Do this at least twice a day for 10 to 15 minutes, more often in the first couple of days.
  • Take acetaminophen or ibuprofen for pain and inflammation.
  • Wear proper-fitting shoes.
  • Night splints are worn to keep the heel stretched out when you sleep.
  • Exercises and stretches such as calf stretches and towel stretches are designed to relax the tissues that surround the heel bone.
