Re: my sons ankle

Without examining him I can only throw out some thoughts. I would want to know whent his started, how often it happens, anything that makes it better etc. I would want to see what shape his foot is, watch him walk and run, see what shoes he wears, what he plays etc. If he has some ongoing trauma, I would think he would hurt while going through various activites, not when at rest.

I would question about his diet- getting enough calcium, magnesium, vitamins.

The HealWell Night splint is designed to comfortably position the foot in a controlled amount of dorsiflexion to provide a gentle stretch to the plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon. This gentle stretch helps reduce the muscle contracture, inflammation and associated pain. It has also been clinically proven to reduce symptoms of plantar fasciitis.
