Sever's Disease

My son is 12 and has suffered from Sever's Disease since he was 8. After basketball season, the pain is slight to moderate. Once basketball starts up again, he is in SEVERE pain. We have seen 3 physicians and have iced, stretched, strengthened, and used 3 kinds of heel lifts, but to no avail. We recently tried Aleve twice a day just to get him through basketball season. After 2 weeks, we've seen no pain relief at all. He should be getting orthotics any day now, so we're hoping it will help some (he has overpronation - nobody mentioned orthotics until recently). We're thinking of making him quit basketball. Any suggestions?
