The Plantar fascia and Achilles Tendon are both bands of thick fibrous connective tissue that connect to the heel, when strained in an adult they can develop micro-tearing at the attachement points which creates pain and discomfort around the heel. In children there is a soft growth plate on either side of the Plantar fascia and Achilles which becomes inflammed when strained.
