Severs disease is the most common heel pain complaint we see in children. These poor kids find it painful to play sports or simply just run around with their friends. The pain is confined to the heel and generally, but not always, accompanies some type of growth spurt. The pain usually disappears after sitting down and resting for a while but will come back during activity – especially high impact activities such as running, football/netball, tennis and the like. Maybe they don’t even want to start the activity because they know it is going to hurt!
Does this sound like your child – if so then read on. We may just have the solution you are looking for!
