Plantar Fasciitis

Posted by GailG on 5/21/03 at 14:23 (119526)

My nine year old son has just been diagnosed with PF, what is the best treatment to ease pain and discomfort as getting a child to rest for any of the periods of time suggested by my doctor is not feasible, as my son competes in trampolining . Any advice welcome.

Gail:

Can you pinpoint the area of maximum tenderness on his foot?
