Although it sounds terrifying, Sever’s disease is a common injury that occurs in kids, especially adolescents who do running and jumping sports. Sever’s disease is the irritation of the calcaneal growth plate. Your child may experience heel pain or discomfort in the Achilles area.
Orthotics with a deep heel cup and cushioning can decrease discomfort. Call Burlington Orthotic Centre today at 905-331-4391 to book your appointment today if your child is complaining of this type of pain.
