back of the heel pain

Posted by Cindy on 12/04/00 at 09:54 (034133)

Hello Dr.

My son complains after ph-ed and running of a pain behind left heel. There is no injury he can remember. Should I take him in for an x-ray?

thank you, Cindy

Yes, please have this checked out. Depending on his age the growth plate at the back of his heel has not closed yet. This area will need to be protected and he might have to make changes in his phyis ed routine. Dr. B.
