Heel pain, is pain at the back of the heel or the bottom of the heel and is common in children aged between 10 and 14 years. At Physio.co.uk, our paediatric physiotherapists are experienced at treating heel pain in young children and adolescents. Heel pain can be caused by:
  • Sever’s disease – this occurs when growth of the calf bones, calf muscles and Achilles tendon is not properly matched causing tightness in the Achilles tendon and inflammation of the heel bone.
  • Plantar fasciitis – inflammation of the plantar fascia (band of connective tissue on the sole of the foot) caused by micro trauma to the fibres.
  • Achilles tendonitis – overuse and added pressure on this tendon causes small tears in the Achilles tendon and inflammation.
  • Bursitis – constant pressure on the ankle causes inflammation of the bursa located in the area between the Achilles tendon and calf muscles.
Physiotherapy treatment at Physio.co.uk will relieve pain and swelling to get your child back to a level they were previously.

At Physio.co.uk, we provide specialised treatment for heel pain. Physiotherapy treatment at Physio.co.uk will speed up your child's recovery so they can get back to the activities they enjoy the most. Physiotherapy will be centred on: Our paediatric physiotherapist will assess your childs current symptoms in order to develop a physiotherapy treatment program which may include:
  • Pacing techniques including advice on when to rest from activity which makes the pain worse
  • Use of ice and ultrasound to reduce swelling and pain
  • Stretching the calf muscle
  • Strengthening the intrinsic muscles of the foot
  • Strapping the foot during activity to help support the arch of the foot
  • Advice on an ankle foot orthosis or heel raises to prevent over pronation of the foot during activity
Our physiotherapists at Physio.co.uk also work closely with podiatrists and orthotists who will provide your child with orthotics if necessary.
