Children's Heel Pain
Heel Pain can be a serious problem for you. It’s a nasty condition and one that needs to be treated fast once it presents or ideally prevented in the first place. Often our patients will report that they just can’t get up and go anymore, playing with the kids gets harder and exercise becomes near impossible. It will be a major issue for you (and your exercise plans) if you don’t act early.
Most cases of heel pain are caused by Plantar Fasciitis, Achilles Tendon Injury, (Children's Heel Pain) Sever’s or a Heel Spur. In the case of Plantar Fasciitis, Heel Spurs and Achilles Tendinitis the injury site can actually completely rupture and then surgery is the most likely.
