Sever's Disease is a complicated condition which can affect children as young as 9 years old. The disease is essentially inflammation of the growth plate of the heel bone, which often occurs when children are going through growth spurts. It seems to particularly affect active kids, which is cruel as the pain can often prevent active kids from playing as much as they'd like to.
Luckily, there are options for kids suffering with Sever's Disease. One of the best things to try is a specialist pair of shoes or shoe inserts, which can help to position the heel in a way which prevents pain and allows for healing. There are lots of options out there, but we thought it would be useful to round up the best shoes we've found for Sever's Disease. Let's get into the guide:
Tuli’s Cheetah Heel Cup
Shugenics arch support insoles
Everhealth orthotic insoles
Ailaka arch support insoles
Sever's disease is a complicated condition which unfortunately affects many children during their growth spurt phase. While the above shoes and shoe insoles won't completely cure the disease, they'll go a long way towards making it a lot less painful.
