Common Causes of Foot and Heel Pain in Kids

Just like adults, children can experience foot and heel pain. They may not be able to communicate what they are experiencing or feeling.

Parents may notice that their child complains of their shoes feeling stiff or tight. They may also notice their child walking differently, limping or having a change in activity level.

In children these complaints or changes may be are result of:

  • Sever’s Disease (an inflammation of the growth plate of the heel bone)
  • overuse injury
  • stress fracture
  • plantar fasciitis
  • achilles tendinitis
  • Poor fitting footwear
  • flat feet / high arches
  • Plantar warts
  • Ingrown toenails
  • Athletes foot / fungal infections
