soccer heel pain

Posted by Jeanne on 8/29/01 at 08:33 (058335)

My daugter plays competitive soccer and has been having centralized heelpain which is preventng her from playing. Any suggestions besides ice, advil? she's had custom orthotics which were never comfortable in her cleats and as a result, she doesn't wear them. she's had some achilles tendonitis in the past.

Did you mention that the orthotics were uncomfortable to the doc or the company that made the orthotics? Simple interfacing should do the trick. Orthotics in soccer shoes can be a little tricky to fit, but it can be done.

Is the achilles tendonitis acting up right now?
