Growing Pains:  Sever's Disease or Calcaneal Apophysitis


 

Sever's Disease is most common in children usually between the age of 7 and 15.  Most of the time is is in children at the ages of 9 and 12. 

 

It is a painful inflamation of the heel often affecting both heels.  The pull on the calcaneal apophyseal line.  The achillies tendon pulls the groth plate upward causing pull on tissues on the bottom of the heel(s). Sever's disease is directly related to the over use of the bone and the tendons in the heel. This can come from playing sports or anything that involves a lot of heel movement.  Often it occurs when starting a new sport or the start of a new season of sports, especially soccer.  Too much weight bearing will cause excessive traction of the bones because the soft tissue is growing faster than the bones.  The most common biomechanical problem is kids who over pronate.  The key is fitting the kids with orthotics to stop the pronation.  Stretching the calves and icing the heels is very helpful.

 

We treat it as we do Adult Plantar Fasciitis.  So any of you parents who are freaking out about this.....please don't.  It's a very simple process to take care of this.
