NERVE PAIN CONDITIONS
Frequently Asked Questions
After the wear-and-tear of years of use, your feet may develop a heel spur. Heel spurs cause painful bumps on your feet alongside chronic irritation.

Conquering your Heel pain is as easy as taking the next step toward happy feet and scheduling today!
Resting may sound like a great way to help your aching feet, but with heel spurs, you might be making it worse.
In more than 90% of people with bone spurs, simple stretching and orthotics correct the problem. If you’re still suffering from acute pain after 9-12 months of treatment, your doctor may suggest removing the spur.
Your doctor explains any complications and the entire surgery process during your appointment, and answers any concerns or questions you may have.
The expert team at Next Step Foot & Ankle Clinic suggest simple treatments such as:
WEARING ORTHOTIC INSERTS OR SUPPORTIVE SHOES
Changing your shoes to more comfortable footwear and/or adding orthotic insoles to relieve the pressure on your ligament can help increase your elasticity and heal.
We are the first and currently only provider in and around San Antonio that offers custom 3D orthotics with our FitStation by Hewlette Packard. Providing the doctors with more data points, such as your individual pressure points per your gait (way/manner in which you walk) in order to design a perfectly custom orthotic.
Click the video below to see how Dr. Silvester recommends stretches to help treat your Heel Pain. Stretching helps loosen your ligaments, increasing the elasticity and helping them heal.
Wearing a night splint or brace keeps your muscles from pulling on your bone while you sleep, assisting further in helping you heal.
OVER THE COUNTER MEDICATION
Although, at Next Step it is our goal to get you off pain medication, in extreme cases it may be necessary.
Your health care professionals may also recommend weight loss for better distribution on your feet and relieve added pressure.
