Does your child have heel pain? Let us treat Sever’s Disease!
Heel pain in children, no it’s not plantar fasciitis! When we are born, our heel bone is actually in 2 separate pieces, joined together by a growth plate. By the age of 14-16 the heel then fuses into one large bone. Severs disease is a growth plate disorder of the heel bone, commonly occurring in active children aged 8-14 that causes complications of the fusing of the heel bones.
