Re: Heel pain

This condition usually is self limiting. When the growth plate closes at around age 14, then it usually subsides. When there is a continued problem, there may be other factors involved, such as a short achilles tendon. In addition to heel cushions, an orthotic may be needed.

Since I have not seen him or the x-rays and taken comparision views of the other foot, I can not comment on the fractures. Rest may be the best thing at this point.

The Active Ankle offers flexibility and security. It will feel different from anything you have ever worn for ankle protection. The hinge allows freedom of motion that you may not be accustomed to. Do not mistake this freedom of movement for lack of support. A leading university said, the Active Ankle provides more support (inversion) than the leading air-stirrup brace, the leading lace-up brace, or a tape job.
