    Is it swelling or increase in bone size?
  7. User
    How can increased bone become normal by cushioned heels and cold packs? Please suggest
  8. It is actually not increased bone but little extra calcium deposition which shows up as a bony outgrowth and it has no particular reasons too and calcaneal spur could be symptomatic and asymptomatic too irrespective of x-ray findings. So we focus upon the symptoms and treat it accordingly...
