Heel Spurs
A bone growth in the heel area is a heel spur. The Plantar fascia is a long band of tissue connecting the heel to the ball of the foot. When the plantar fascia is over stretched, spur develops. The connecting tissues hold the heel and the ball of the foot and act as a shock absorber during activity. When overstretched it causes pain and inflammation.

Treatment of the spurs:
Rest and wearing good foot wear Sometimes, steroid injections to relieve inflammation Surgery

Foot Corn
Corns are yellowish growths on the toes due to foot stress and abuse. Often ill-fitting shoes and the rubbing of the toe with another cause corns. They are extremely painful and cause discomfort.

Wearing comfortable shoes applying pads around the area Surgery

Morton's neuroma
When there is a growth of tissues in the nerves that connect the two long bones of the foot, morton neuroma occurs. Generally when the two bones rub together and squeeze the nerve between them it gives rise to pain and swelling and leads to Morton's neuroma. Treatment involves rest, proper footwear and in extreme cases cortisone injections and surgery is recommended.

Wearing tight and ill-fitting shoes can often protrude the middle joint of the toe or buckle the toe. Corns often develop in the affected area. Treatment of hammertoes includes new footwear for deformed feet, applying toe pads on the bony protrusion or surgical removal.
