You can have the spur removed surgically and it will relieve the pressure on the nerve if it is causing so.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care

I have a bone spur on the back of my heel that is affecting my achiles tendon and causes pain when I walk. I went to a podiatrist and they prescribed physical therapy to stretch the muscle. It still hurts when I walk and has not improved. I am told that they can t remove the bone spur because it is all connected to the achiles tendon. I have been suffering with this for 4 months. Any suggestions?
