Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


Sever's disease is an apophysitis or osteochondrosis of the calcaneal apophysis. Clinically, it includes painful heels and limitation of movement; and radiologically, fissuring and fragmentation of the calcaneal apophysis. Treatment is usually conservative, but when migration of the apophysis occurs, either posterior or plantar, surgical treatment is sometimes indicated.
