Children's Heel Pain
Many times children's heel pain is dismissed and assumed it is part of growing pains. This is often not the case, and it should always be evaluated by a pediatric podiatrist in order to make sure that there are no red flags for something more serious going on.
Children's heel pain can be the result of Achilles Tendinitis, a heel fracture, Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis, or in most cases, a condition called Sever's disease.
Sever’s disease accounts for over 90% of the children’s heel pain cases we see and is the #1 cause of heel pain in kids.
In this episode Dr. Mikkel Jarman discusses children's heel pain and possible causes and treatments.
