Plantar Fasciitis

Posted by Sheryl S. on 9/28/00 at 09:46 (029307)

Is is possible that a 10 yr old child can have this? I've been reading about it but have found nothing for children. He has just awful heel pain. I've been giving him Ibuprofen TID and bought him some heal pads. Is this all I can do? Please Help

sheryl: there is a disease in children called Sever's disease that can cause heel pain. check this out with your doctor.

I have an article on my web site http://www.thefootspecialists.com . In the children section it talks about Sever's disease.
