Trump Blames Feet for Vietnam Deferment16512978040_fce0c87963_z

Can a bone spur really keep your from serving in the military?  The bone spurs that the presidential candidate, Donald Trump, is referring to were located in his heels.  These heel spurs are the result of Plantar Fasciitis, the most common cause of heel pain.  Plantar Fasciitis is an inflammatory and degenerative disease of a fascia band on the bottom of the foot.  It can cause significant pain.

Anybody who has ever suffered from heel pain knows that it can be excruciating and cause difficulty performing normal activities like walking the dog or standing at the sink doing dishes.  The severity of the pain varies from person to person.  With proper treatment most people resolve their symptoms within six weeks.  Still, this disease can plague many for month or even years.  Typically the sooner one seeks treatment, the more quickly symptoms can be resolved.

Plantar Fasciitis is also a common disease of men and women during basic training in the military.  This is the result of unsupportive boots and increased activity on the feet.  Intervention is often early and resolution is quick with proper treatment.  Still, running long distances or strenuous athletic activity can put one at risk of further injuring the fascia, such as causing it to rupture.  About five percent of all plantar fascia suffers need advanced intervention such as surgery.

Though a heel spur in the foot sounds benign, it can be very debilitating.  A quick and successful recovery is possible, but only when treated properly.  Supportive shoes, orthotics, stretching, icing, anti-inflammatories and cortisone injections are the most common treatments and it often takes a combination of all of these treatments to result in pain free heels.   In difficult cases, platelet rich plasma, shockwave therapy, stem cell injections or even surgery is necessary.
