That’s why you fly up because you touched the ground with your heel.
Johann Wolfgang Goethe «Faust»
What kind of leg disease occurs suddenly, can also suddenly disappear, or can remain for a long time? And if this happens, then the white light becomes not nice.
I give the answer right away — this is a heel spur. It is a bony growth 3-12 mm in size from the side of the sole near the calcaneal tuber or near the attachment of the Achilles tendon. As a rule, the growth is sharp, like a nail. Because of it, when walking, soft tissues are injured and severe pain and inflammation of the surrounding tissues occur. Currently, the prevalence of heel spurs is high: about 10% of diseases of the musculoskeletal system.
Like the rest of the foot, the heel acts as a shock absorber. The soft fat layer and calcaneus, the largest of the 26 bones in the foot, can withstand the tremendous stress of running and walking. But blood vessels pass through the heel bone, which is why, in comparison with other bones, it is softer, more spongy. Pass through it and the nerves.
It is because of the presence of nerve channels and blood vessels that the heel is so sensitive to injury.
The main causes of heel spurs are:
Injuries to the foot, especially the heel;
excessive stress on the heels (playing sports, wearing high-heeled shoes;
· excess weight;
· flat feet;
· metabolic disease;
Diseases that interfere with circulation, such as diabetes.
Whoever had or has a spur in his heel knows what a sharp, unbearable, burning pain a person experiences when taking his first steps after a long sitting, or in the morning after sleep, getting up on his feet. Almost all patients compare the pain with a nail in the heel. After the person «disperses», the pain decreases. But in the evening, usually, it intensifies again. And so it is repeated day after day.
People with a spur try to stand on a sore heel less often, their performance is noticeably reduced. And if the spurs are on both heels, the person can hardly walk.
It is not difficult to guess that many people with a heel spur who have tried various methods of treatment and have not received relief earn another illness — depression.
I know about the pain caused by a heel spur not only from the words of exhausted patients, but I also had this problem myself. A spur appeared on my left heel three months after an unsuccessful jump from a height. One fine morning, waking up in the morning when standing up, she screamed from unbearable pain in her left heel. There was a feeling that I stepped on a thick nail and it stuck into the heel. She sat down, examined the heel, but did not find a nail or any other object that would cause such pain. With every attempt to take a step, the pain resumed with renewed vigor. Overcoming the pain, she forced herself to walk, and after 10 minutes she left. However, it was too early to rejoice, because the attacks were repeated not only every morning, but every time she got up after a long sitting. Ultrasound and fluoroscopy revealed the presence of a heel spur. The treatment prescribed by the doctor (NSAID pills, massage, ultrasound treatment) brought relief, but did not relieve completely. What have I not tried! Cabbage and burdock leaves, wood lice, mustard, etc., all to no avail. A happy accident helped. One old physician I know, a physiotherapist, gave me an ointment in a small jar that had a strong smell of vinegar and said that I should rub it into the sore heel for 5 days. I did not believe it, but in order not to offend the person, I thanked and, just in case, not expecting anything good, greased my heel. It didn’t take me 5 days. The pain went away after 3 times. He did not reveal the recipe for the miraculous ointment to me, and when I asked why the creams, the instructions of which were promising, did not help, he said what I remembered for the rest of my life. No matter what “golden” components the cream consists of, it will not help if there are no conductors in its composition, i.e. substances that will help these components penetrate the skin and reach the spur. Without such conductors, the entire cream will remain on the skin and, at best, will have a softening effect. After his ointment, I forgot about my spur for 17 years. And recently, after another injury, she again reminded of herself with even greater force. My «doctor-wizard» was long gone…
When the pharmacy offered me a choice of several creams, after a long study of the instructions, I saw one in which, along with perfectly matched natural ingredients, there were “conductors”. Without hesitation, I chose this particular cream and not in vain. The pain in the heel was significantly reduced the next morning after application, and after 4 days it left me as unexpectedly as it appeared.

DOCTOR BOBYR® No. 4 foot cream-balm contains natural conductors — cocoa butter, boswellia extract, tea tree essential oil. They deliver all the components of the cream directly to the pathological focus, namely to the heel spur.
According to the mechanism of action, the active components of the cream can be divided into several main groups:

plant extracts and natural ingredients that have analgesic and anti-inflammatory effects — sesame oil, cocoa butter, cognac mannan, propolis extract, apple seed extract, sweet clover extract, boswellia extract, tea tree essential oil, CO2 burdock extract, CO2 amaranth extract;
plants that improve blood flow and metabolic processes in the damaged area — sesame oil, sweet clover extract, boswellia extract, tea tree essential oil, CO2 amaranth extract;

This combination of components of anti-inflammatory action, absorbable, analgesic and conductors really brings results.
