What is it?
In children and adolescents, the growth plate at the heel is where the bone remodels (grows). During growth spurts of this bone, the Achilles tendon and muscles of the leg may not be growing at the same rate as the bone, and can become over-stretched causing pain or inflammation around the heel.
What causes Sever's disease?
Any activity that involves repeated heel movement – walking, sports, and running – can add extra stress to the tendon around the heel area causing irritation or inflammation.
