Acupuncture for Kids’ foot Pain, Sever’s Disease, and Pediatric Heel Pain
Kids involved in sports often suffer from heel pain known as Sever’s Disease. This is caused by inflammation of the growth plate in the heel where the Achilles tendon attaches.
It’s not uncommon for the inflammation to become painful enough to require a child to stop all activity or drop out of their sport for the season. Regular acupuncture treatments can help manage pain and allow kids to continue playing sports. For kids who are needle shy, I have successfully treated Sever’s with ‘needle-free’ treatment options.
