Treatment for Sever's Disease

The primary method of treating Sever’s disease is taking time off from sports and other physical activities to alleviate the pressure on the heel bone.

During the healing period, your child’s doctor may also recommend:

•   Physical therapy or any type of exercise that involves stretching and
    strengthen leg muscles and tendons.

•   Wrapping ice in a towel and placing it under the child’s heel will also help to alleviate and reduce pain and swelling.

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. ”
