FREE EXPERT TIPS on keeping your ACTIVE lifestyle

Heel Pain in your child

Is your child complaining of sore heels after sport? Is their foot pain preventing them from enjoying sport?

Pain in the heel and ankle is a very common complaint of growing, active children. Because we want to keep them active, it is important to have these problems assessed and not just dismiss them as growing pains.

One of the most common causes of heel and ankle pain is Sever’s disease, or traction calcaneal apophysitis. This problem usually involves an inflammation of the growth plate in the heel pain, often contributed by growth, tight muscles, high activity levels and poor foot and gait posture.It is important to not just dismiss these pains as just growing pains.

Our podiatrists at the Active Foot Clinic have a keen interest and specialised training to recognise and effectively manage the heel pain of your child. So to keep them active, bring your child with foot pain into the Active Foot Clinic for  effective treatment  today.
