The other common location for heel spurs Fungus Eliminator Review is the back of the heel. These spurs develop around or behind the attachment point of the Achilles tendon, a thick and powerful tendon that allows the foot to bend downward at the ankle. Tightness of this tendon, through either tight tissue or short tissue, creates a great deal of traction on the back of the heel bone. Eventually, this traction results in spur formation behind the tendon, or around where it actually attaches on the heel. Additionally, the tendon itself can become calcified, with bone-like deposits within the tendon tissue at and above the heel attachment. Over time, this excessive bone will create inflammation and irritation to the tight tissue around it, and lead to Achilles tendonitis as well as inflammation of the tissue that covers the bone. The pain from this condition is directly related to the bone spur, and can be quite disabling. The tendon may become weakened, and has the potential to rupture. Fractures of these spurs is also not uncommon, although sometimes the separated tendon calcification is misdiagnosed as a fracture of a spur from the heel bone.Near this location is another part of the bone that can be implicated in cases of heel pain. The Haglund's deformity, or Pump Bump, is not actually a spur, but simply an enlargement of the top surface of the back of the heel bone. This bone develops thickened growth for a variety of reasons, some of which includes mechanical pressure from shoes that have firm heel material that protrudes into the heel at this spot. This enlarged bone can become inflamed and irritated, and shoe pressure can worsen it. Although a spur in the true sense is not present, the symptoms in this condition may not be distinguishable from an actual spur on the back of the heel.
