Severs Disease

Sever's disease, also known as calcaneal apophysitis, is a condition that affects children and adolescents during periods of rapid growth. It’s not actually a disease, but rather an overuse injury that occurs at the growth plate of the heel bone due to repetitive pulling of the Achilles tendon. The growth plate is an area of developing cartilage that eventually transforms into bone as a person matures. It’s commonly seen in active children involved in running and/or jumping.
