  • DR. JOHN A. HARDY, OWNER OF TORONTO FOOT CLINIC, ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS SHARES SOME INFORMATION REGARDING SEVER'S DISEASE

 

One of the most common soccer injuries we have seen is the large number of young soccer players complaining of heel pain. This problem is often caused by a condition known as apophysitis of the calcaneus (heel bone) or Sever's disease. "This condition consists of an inflammation of the growth area (heel plate) of the heel bone, which has not completely matured or closed together, and has developed in two parts. It is most commonly seen in boys and girls between the ages of 10-15, says podiatrist Dr. Robert Weiss.  "The pain is usually present in the back of the heel and is more pronounced in running and jumping sports. Sometimes, there is a limp in the child's gait, of which he may not even be aware. It has been described as an osteochondrosis, which is a loss of blood supply to the apophysis," says Dr. Weiss.
