I have two children that also have pain in their heals following extensive sport play. One of which has been dx with spondylosis and suffers extremely tight hamstrings and occasional Achilles tendonitis as well. I have inserted gel cups in their athletic shoes. I have encouraged stretching before and after games. Icing to pain. My wife has P.F. and has been told that her pronated gait attributes alot to her feet problems. Could this be genetic? Is there also a correlation between tight muscles all the way up the legs creating alot of the problems? Does the spondylosis cause all of the above?
