There are many ways to prevent heel spurs. First, you should always wear shoes with appropriate arch support and the right fit. Never wear shoes that force you to walk in an abnormal way. Always buy the one with the right size, right cushioning, and support. Another way is to maintain a healthy weight. Our feet are not designed to carry extra weight. Maintaining a healthy weight ensures that your feet are not carrying excessive weight that could stress and strain the tendons, ligaments, and bones.
If your job requires you to stand or walk the whole day, always take time to give your feet some rest. The same thing applies to athletes and individuals who engage in rigid physical training and exercise. Balance work, activities, and rest. If you feel like you have some pain on your foot that persists, see a foot doctor right away.
