Fit, Fun & Not Flat: 3 Step Program
Does your child need relief from painful heel pain?
Sever’s is the most common cause of heel pain in young children and a very common condition we treat here at Adelaide Podiatry. If not seen to promptly, this can become a very serious issue for your child.
Ranging from discomfort when doing the simple things like getting out of bed right up to debilitating pain when trying to walk or run and everything in- between, it’s a nasty condition and one that needs to be treated fast once it presents and ideally prevented in the first place.
There are a number of symptoms associated with Sever’s including:
- Gradual increase in pain over a prolonged period
- Increase in pain when playing sport
- Stronger pain when barefoot, particularly in the morning
- Sore to squeeze the region
If your child has been expressing issues with these symptoms, you already know how much discomfort and pain it can cause; making even the little things in life difficult. A lot of our patients report that things like playing out in the yard with friends and exercise can feel near impossible. Hardly an ideal situation for a young, active child!
We are all so focused on leading healthy and active lifestyles and ensuring our children grow up fit and strong - but how can your child get fit and healthy, and stay that way if they’re unable to exercise pain free?
Quite simply put, it’s not possible, and that’s a problem.
Sever’s will usually settle after 6-12 months but can, in some cases, take as long as 2 years to settle. It’s important that if your child starts showing symptoms, you get to a podiatrist immediately so that recovery process can begin. There are a number of different tactics used to help accelerate the healing process and your podiatrist can provide guidance and advice for activities to ensure recovery. Healing Sever’s is something that doesn’t come easy and requires professional advice and tactics.
That’s why I’ve created The Fit, Fun & Not Flat: 3 Step Program
