Bone spurs can be extremely painful. Most often, they develop in your heels, causing a lot of pain inside your foot. It’s not a preventable problem, but things can be done to help ease the pain. Surgery is the only thing that can actually remove the spur itself, but taking ibuprofen for inflammation will help. A doctor might even tell you to lose some weight if you are overweight. Being overweight puts added pressure on the spur causing unnecessary pain.
