Signs and Symptoms of Sever's Disease

Sever’s disease presents with symptoms like:

  • redness over heel
  • swelling and inflammation
  • stiffness of leg
  • constant discomfort

Causes of Sever's Disease

Sever's Disease is usually observed in children of growing age. Primary causes include:

  • Higher rate of growth of heel bone in comparison to the surrounding muscles and tendon
  • Overstretching of muscles
  • Application of repeated stress over the heel bone
  • Tightening of Achillies tendon

Some of the significant risk factors include high or flat arches, Short Leg Syndrome (marked by pronounced bending of heel towards the Achilles’ tendon) and obesity.
