Heel Pain

heel pain

Heel pain, while quite common, can be extremely uncomfortable. Heel pain may occur if you injure or overuse the heel. If left uncared for, the affected area may worsen, limiting your mobility and making it difficult to perform everyday activities, such as walking.

There are many different causes of heel pain. Common causes include: plantar fasciitis, Achilles tendonitis, Sever’s disease, skin lesions on the heel, tarsal tunnel syndrome, stress fractures, and heel bursitis.

One of the most common causes of heel pain for children and teenagers specifically is Sever’s disease (calcaneal apophysitis) occurs only in children. Sever’s disease can develop due to overuse or repetitive microtrauma of the heel bone's growth plates. This condition is often seen among those who are active in sports and the pain worsens immediately after or during the activity.

If you’re experiencing heel pain, we recommend you consult with a podiatrist as soon as possible for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan.
