Severs Disease
Severs disease is probably the most common problem that affects the heel bone in children. It has been likened to a stress fracture of the cartilage in the growth plate at the rear of the calcaneus. It is most common during the ages 10-14 years when the bone is actively growing. The pain is usually present at the back and sides of the calcaneus. The typical approach to treatment is the reduction in activity levels and the use of shock absorbing insoles or pads under the calcaneus.
