One of the many treatments that may be used for acute heel spur syndrome,plantar fasciitis, is anti-inflammatories. There are benefits and disadvantages of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications and creams when used to treat heel spur syndrome, Plantar fasciitis. As the name states, anti-inflammatory, beneficially subsides inflammation and swelling, if any, of the plantar fascia. Additionally, for many patients, these medications reduce the acute pain experienced with this condition. Most favorably it is an inexpensive medication and is usually well-tolerated. The most common disadvantage of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications is the potential for stomach problems including ulcers. This medication is not recommended for patients with history of stomach ulcers or on a blood thinner such as Coumadin.
