Heel Pain in the Young Athlete
Heel pain is one of the most common symptoms I see in young athletes. Often, the pain is so bad that it keeps kids from being able to practice and compete. Occasionally, the heels become so severely painful that it is difficult for the athlete to even walk without limping.
So what is the cause of this scourge of the active young athlete? Chances are someone on your team or in your league, or even an older sibling has suffered from it—Sever’s Disease.
