Core Health Partners Athletic Trainer Jeff Barnes demonstrates how to tape for heel pain

by The 100 Companies

Athletes ages 9-14 who run and jump a lot on hard surfaces (especially in basketball, track, or gymnastics) can get a condition called Sever’s disease, or calcaneal apophysitis, which is a common cause of heel pain in pre-teens and teens. The pain is from swelling of the growth plate, which is made of cartilage and more prone to injury than the rest of the heel.

Watch this video to learn how to relieve the pain with compression. Next time you are at the Paradise Coast Sports Complex, look for Core Health Partners to get valuable sports performance and recovery guidance.
