PF in 11 year old child?

Posted by rlpd on 1/09/03 at 20:17 (105183)

Is it possible for a child to get PF. My 11 year old son came home from basketball practice and the bottom of his foot has been hurting. I have heel spurs for three years so I was very aware when he started complainingg about the pain when he walked. He has kept off of it today but it is not any better. Anybody hear of a kid getting this - I think whoa you are too young to be dealing with this kind of pain.

It is possible for an 11 yo to get PF but there are other, more likely diagnoses: acute plantar fascial strain, calcaneal apophysitis.
