Sever’s disease, also known as calcaneal apophysitis, is a common condition that affects children and adolescents during their growth spurts. It is characterised by pain and inflammation in the heel area, specifically at the growth plate of the heel bone (calcaneus).
The condition typically occurs when the heel bone grows faster than the Achilles tendon, causing tension and stress on the growth plate. This can lead to microfractures and irritation, resulting in heel pain.
Sever’s disease is more common in physically active children involved in sports that involve running and jumping.

Your podiatrist will start out with a conservative treatment plan and only move on to more aggressive measures if needed. The following list is some of the approaches we take.
A biomechanical examination typically involves the assessment of movement patterns when you are walking or running. The goal is to evaluate how the body is functioning, identify any potential areas of weakness or imbalance, and make recommendations for corrective exercises or treatments.
The examination may include a variety of tests and measurements, such as range of motion assessments, muscle strength, gait analysis, and postural analysis. At ModPod we utilise video treadmill assessments and digital pressure analysis.
Custom orthotics are medical devices that are designed to provide support, cushioning, and correction to the feet and lower extremities. They are typically made from materials such as foam, plastic, or leather, and are custom-fitted to an individual’s foot shape and gait.
Orthotics can be used to treat a wide range of foot and lower limb conditions, including Mortons Neuroma, plantar fasciitis, flat feet, high arches, and heel spurs. They can also be used to provide support and cushioning for individuals with diabetes or arthritis.
At ModPod we have over 20 years of experience in prescribing orthotics. We would first start with a biomechanical assessment, moving on to a 3d scan of your foot. This scan is sent to our orthotic laboratory who manufactures the orthotic which is ready for fitting after 2 weeks.
