You don't tape them. Your best bet is to research "plantar fasciitis exercises" online to get a few ideas of what to do for relief. Also an ice pack at bedtime will feel good. Heel spur comes from a tendon shortening; if you stretch the tendon daily, over time it will be long enough for the pain to be mostly non existent. The exercises are easy and can be done anywhere. Sometimes an arch insert helps too, especially if your shoes don't have a lot of support.

If the exercises don't help you can see a podiatrist for cortisone injections, but they don't last and are painful so use it as a last resort. I suffer from heel spurs so my advice comes from experience with the condition. I had them so bad in both heels at the same time I could barely walk each morning; now except for an occasional flare (every few years or so), I don't have the pain any more. Good luck!

I have never wrapped my foot for a heel spur. Go to a department store or pharmacy and get a heel cushion that says it's for plantar fascia. Insert it into your shoes and wear shoes as much as possible.


It will take awhile, but you will find relief. You can also do exercises for this. Stand with your toes on the edge of a step, facing the step. Let your heels go lower than your toes, thus stretching the heel area.

Go to U-Tube, there are pictures there. It's not easy to do it yourself. I've tried.

Usually heel spurs need padding in the heel of footwear.
