How is Sever’s disease diagnosed?

Sever’s disease can be diagnosed based on the symptoms your child has. Your child’s doctor will conduct a physical examination by squeezing different parts of your child’s foot to see if they cause any pain.

An X-ray may be used to rule out other problems, such as  a broken bone or fracture.

Boston Children’s is so much more than a hospital—it’s a community of researchers, clinicians, administrators, support staff, innovators, teachers, patients and families, all working together to make the impossible possible. ”
