My son has been complaining of heal pain for a few weeks now. I've taken him to see a podiatrist who can find nothing wrong with his foot. No swelling or rubbing so I'm taking him to the doctors to ask for an xray to rule out a heel spur. I was wondering if anyone else's kids ever had bad heel pain and what the likelyhood of a heel spur in a 12 year old is. My son is quite sporty and walks about a mile each way to and from school. Interestingly enough he didn't feel pain in the summer holidays when wearing either flip flops or nothing but the podiatrist didn't seem to think his shoes were the cause as they fit properly. He has quite tight calves as well. Any advice or suggestions gratefully received.
