Severís Disease & Growing Pains

At Healthy Steps Foot Clinic, we understand that children's foot health is a top priority for parents. Our specialist podiatrist provides expert care and tailored solutions for conditions like Sever's Disease and growing pains.

Understanding Sever's Disease

Sever's Disease, also known as calcaneal apophysitis, is a common condition that affects growing children. It involves inflammation of the growth plate in the heel bone, often due to the rapid growth that occurs during puberty. Our experienced podiatrist will accurately diagnose Sever's Disease and develop a personalised treatment plan to address your child's discomfort.

Growing Pains Relief

Growing pains are aches or discomfort experienced by children during periods of rapid growth. While typically harmless, they can be concerning for both children and parents. Our podiatrist will assess your child's condition, provide pain management strategies, and offer advice on supportive footwear and exercises to alleviate growing pains.

Conservative Treatments

For conditions like Sever's Disease and growing pains, we focus on conservative treatment approaches. These may include stretching exercises, orthotic inserts, footwear recommendations, and activity modifications. Our goal is to ensure your child's comfort and promote healthy foot development.

Education and Support

We believe in educating parents and children about these conditions. We'll explain the causes, symptoms, and treatment options, as well as provide guidance on preventive measures to support your child's foot health during growth spurts.
