I have two bone spurs in my right heal and one just starting in the left foot. I have fallen two lately. Once in March when my dog's chain got caught around my ankle and down I went on concrete. Recently, cord to my laptop computer tripped me up and I landed on BOTH my knees (not praying unfortunately) on my wood floors. I have been receiving treatments from a reflexologist for almost a year. She has kept me from losing work due to surgery. But, my ankles are really stiff now. My Grandmother on my Mother's side had hardening of the arteries. I take fish oil with berry and vitamins.
