I'm about to take my 8 year old to see a foot doctor for what I think is plantar fasciitis because of all the barefoot stuff she does in gym and then is constantly in socks/bare feet in our house. When I had it, the biggest thing that helped was wearing birckenstocks around the house.
Has anyone had this issue and what kind of inserts/house shoes did you use for a little kid to help?
Thanks!

For a 8 year old it is likely Sever’s and not plantar fasciitis.

The treatment is a little different. There are lots of posts about it in this site and your doctor will give you good information.
