Bone Spur: Causes, Symptoms & Treatments

Physical Activities

While regular physical activities and exercises might help you keep a healthy weight and overall health, doing them too much would put excessive stress and pressure on your feet. As a result, it might increase the risk of developing bone spurs. This is especially high in those people with a low arch or flat in their feet. This places more strain on the joints when touching the ground, thus causing other issues such as bunions, blisters, hammer toe, or bone spurs. To avoid the issue, it is better to avoid too intense activities in short periods. Also, make sure to wear fitting shoes to prevent constant friction on your toes and feet. [2]
