However, people don’t pay attention to diet at ordinary times, and often eat foods with more purine components, which will lead to the increase of uric acid in the body, which will lead to gout and then have heel pain. In addition, people usually have pain in their heels, or they may have bone spurs in their heels. Long bony spur in joints is a common condition, and long bony spur is the self-repair of joints.
