pain heel

Heel pain in the growing athlete is due to overuse and repetitive microtrauma of growth plates of the calcaneus in the heel.

This can come from playing sports or anything that involves a lot of heel movement. It can be associated with starting a new sport, or the start of a new season.Too much weight bearing on the heel can also cause it, as can excessive traction since the bones and tendons are still developing.
