Spurs are accumulated calcium deposits on the bones of the heel or anywhere on the foot (or any other part of the body). They can be very painful and will sometimes need surgical intervention to scrape the spur. A theraputic approach such as massage can be a great attempt at healing the spurs before undergoing surgery.
The goal when using the foot massager is to decrease pain and inflammation, not to permanently heal spurs.
1. Start by icing the arch of your foot for 10-15 minutes, or use a cooling cream such as Sombra cooling gel.
2. If possible, use soothing therapeutic oils such as lavender or vanilla prior to using the MedMassager
3. Begin using the MedMassager foot massager on a low setting for the first minute or two, then slowly increase the speed to the most comfortable setting or where it feels the best for you.
Use for 5-10 minutes at a time.
