Joint Pain Hack

by Jerome Princy (2020-02-20)

From a physiological Joint Pain Hack Review perspective, the inflammation can technically continue until the growth plate fuses into bone in the late teen years, although it is uncommon for this condition to last so long. However, most kids suffer through the discomfort for several months at least. The symptoms of this condition are fairly specific. The pain begins with walking, running, or standing for awhile. It is located along the bottom back part of the heel, and may include some pain traveling up the Achilles tendon. Arch pain can sometimes be felt, but this has more to do with irritation of the arch due to limping from the heel pain than from the growth plate pain itself. Skin swelling, warmth, redness, or other external signs of this inflammation are rarely seen. The child with this condition will have difficulty participating in sports or other activity due to the pain, but usually will persist with that activity since the pain is rarely severe enough to outright prevent them from staying active. Unfortunately, this will only prolong the condition. The Achilles tendon also plays a role in this condition. Since the Achilles tendon attaches to the heel bone along the near side of the growth plate, any tightness in this tendon can exert excessive pressure on the growth plate. The pressure, which essentially is extra traction on the back of the growth plate, causes further inflammation and irritation. On rare instances, the growth plate itself may not be inflamed from a natural process but rather from an injury that has caused a fracture. Growth plate fractures in the heel bone are rare, but do occur. Causes can include a fall from a moderate height as well as a hard kick backwards onto a firm object.
