Severs Disease, also known as Calcaneal Apophysitis, is a painful foot condition that usually affects children between 9 and 15 years of age.

Active children may often suffer from Severs Disease when they experience sharp, aching pain in their feet, particularly in their heels, which may cause them to change their gait (the way their foot hits the ground as they walk or run).

Severs Disease is caused by a growth spurt during adolescence when the heel bone grows faster than the muscles and tendons of the foot and leg, resulting in pain. It is most common in young athletes like soccer players and gymnasts.
