We often have a “no pain, no gain” attitude when it comes to staying fit and healthy or during sports games. Have you ever pushed through the pain, only to realize that there was something more serious going on than you were aware of?

When it comes to your child’s foot health, proper care and prompt treatment are very important. Children are busy. They often don’t stop to ask for a drink and may not stop to tell you they are experiencing foot pain. You may need to watch them and seek treatment if you find they are unwilling to participate or notice any changes in their activity level. It may be due to foot pain.

Texas foot specialist, Dr. Marco Vargas treats children of all ages on a regular basis. Heel pain is one of the more common foot problems seen in children and it shouldn’t be ignored. If your child is complaining that their heels are hurting them, it is important to seek treatment before the condition worsens.

The source of heel pain in children is often the growth plate of the heel bone and is referred to as Sever’s disease. Children are most susceptible to heel pain during the growth spurt years, between the ages of 8 and 15. Heel pain can develop with too much stress, pounding on the feet or overuse. This can happen with children who are very active or overweight.

What can I do if my child has heel pain?

Listen to your child and seek treatment. The first thing to do is call Dr. Vargas for a full evaluation. He can diagnose the root of the pain and provide the best treatment for your child. He may use icing, rest, shoe modifications, heel pads, and physical therapy or custom orthotics to help your child. Make an appointment today if your child is complaining of foot pain. We have three convenient locations in Sugar Land, Houston and Missouri City, TX.
