What cardio can you do with a heel spur?
While running sprints can be hard on the feet, doing sprints on your favorite cardio equipment can be both effective and pain-free. Using the stationary cycle, hand cycle, rowing machine, or elliptical, alternate going as fast as you can for 30 seconds, and resting for 30 seconds.
What aggravates a heel spur?
Poorly fitting or worn footwear that strains the arch or hinders the gait. Sudden weight gain that puts more strain on the arch of the foot. High-impact exercise routines or sports that wear down the fascia (any activity that involves lots of running, jumping, or sudden movements)
What is the fastest way to heal a heel spur?
- Resting your heel. If you run or jog, taking a break will help your heel pain.
- Using cold packs or ice.
- Taking oral anti-inflammatory medicine.
- Wearing footwear or shoe inserts that support your arches and protect your plantar fascia by cushioning the bottom of your foot.
