Heel pain in children is often due to an injury to the growth plate, a condition called “Calcaneal Apophysitis” or otherwise known as “Sever’s Disease”. Overuse or repeated stress to the growth plate results in painful inflammation. This type of heel pain appears different for children than adults and does not go away easily. There are a few treatments offered at our clinic for this painful condition.
