Heel Pain In Children

Meghan Heins, PA-C is a physician assistant who works in our Arlington and Tysons offices.

Injury to the growth plate of the heel, also known as Sever’s Disease, can be a common cause of heel pain in children and adolescents. It is rarely seen after the early teenage years as the foot is one of the first body parts to grow to full size. During periods of rapid growth, bones often grow at a faster rate than muscles and tendons. As a result, the Achilles tendon, which attaches to the back of the heel, can become tight and painful during exercise and sports. This condition usually responds well to conservative treatment measures such as calf and Achilles stretching, heel pads, icing, rest, and over-the-counter pain relievers such as Tylenol or ibuprofen.
