Our Dr’s Dr Foot Names his favourite treatments for heel pain

First, I think the message I'd like to give them is that pain is not normal.

Pain is actually our body's way of saying that there is a problem.

I think, next, I'd say you don't have to wait for them to grow out of it.

This is a really old school way. And on most occasions, there's really active therapies practitioners can use to get your child back into activity, if they really know what they're doing.

Look, I think as foot doctors, it's our job to get kids back to happy, healthy and active, and as soon as we can.

I hope that helps. Make sure you head to our information below and our links to look up more information about heel pain, foot types, and other sports injuries. We look forward to making you happy, healthy and active.
