Brandt R Gibson, DPM
Podiatrist, Neuropathy Doctor, Father of 11 and Founder of Mountain West Foot & Ankle Institute

Children, especially athletic children, can often get heel pain.  Although plantar fasciitis rarely presents in children, due to the elasticity of their tissues, there are several common causes for heel pain that can be treated.  Dr Brandt R Gibson, in American Fork, Utah discusses what these causes of heel pain could be and helps alleviate your fears.  For additional information, visit the child's heel pain page (http://www.utahfootdoc.com/library/severes-disease-calcaneal-apophysitis-heel-pain-child.cfm) or www.UtahHeelPainCenter.com.
