Re: Severs Disease-sports oriented

DR. ABRAMS,

My 11 y.o. son plays soccer. He is experiencing alot of pain in his heel area after practices and games. I believe he has Sever's Disease. Many parents we have talked to have tried heel cups and some have seen a Podiatrist or Ortho Surg. to have special casts made to wear.

What do you recommend we do? We've been icing his heels after sports activity and given him Motrin. We tried some Dr.Scholl's heel cups, but I don't think they've helped much. We want to have him seen by a Podiatrist, but it takes a while before we can get an appointment.

What do you think about the Quag heel inserts?


Thanks, Bob
