Sever’s Disease: A Common Cause of Your Child’s Heel Pain
What is Sever's disease? Sever's disease occurs in children when the part of the heel that is still growing, the growth plate, is injured. The foot is one of the first body parts in children to grow to full size. Typically this occurs in early puberty. During this time, bones often grow faster than surrounding muscles and tendons. As a result, muscles and tendons will become tight. The heel area is less flexible than other areas of the body and can be easily injured.

This condition exists when the big toe is rigid.  That is, little to no motion is available. These conditions most commonly afflict people after the age of 30. Full Story
