Children's heel pain can be a frustrating condition that is common in active patients that are often participating in sports and athletics.  The condition can be present in any age up to growth plate fusion but is most common in those age 10-16.  The heel pain is often associated with the growth plate in the calcaneus and the pull of the achilles tendon at the area.  The condition if often called "Sever's disease" or calcaneal apophysitis.  The condition rarely improves on its own in the active patient and is very successfully and quickly treated by our board certified foot doctors/podiatrists.  Our quick healing treatment does not require any decrease in activity or any delay in sports.  Call a top/best ranked podiatrist/foot doctor at Prestige Podiatry today for same day appointments serving Indianapolis, Carmel, Greenwood, Fishers, Zionsville, Westfield, Noblesville, and Center Grove, Indiana/IN.

The podiatrists/foot doctors at Prestige Podiatry were one of the first in the country to begin utilizing a laser to treat toenail fungus with high success.  The procedure is virtually painless and can be performed on any age patient.  The results have an 88% success rate.  The laser really poses no significant risk, unlike the oral anti-fungals which strain the liver and do not have nearly as high of success rates.  The topical medicines are very ineffective and cumbersome to apply.  Call a board certified foot doctor/podiatrist for laser toenail fungus treatment at Prestige Podiatry.
