In one prospective study of injuries among players aged 9-19 years in football academies, 2% of overall football injuries were due to Sever's disease; the peak for incidence was in the under-11 age group. [4] Aetiology The line of ossification in the calcaneal apophysis is thought to develop microfractures due to recurrent stresses on the heel, combined with the growth spurt of puberty. As in similar conditions (eg, Osgood-Schlatter disease), it is believed to be caused by decreased resistance… 



Ultrasonography of the calcaneus in Sever's disease.

The initial data showed that sonography may be valuable in the diagnosis of Severs disease and fragmentation of the secondary nucleus of the calcaneus with ultrasonography on both conventional radiograph and sonography.

Sever's injury: a clinical diagnosis.

Radiologic findings of increased density and fragmentation are found also in pain-free controls with high levels of physical activity and may, therefore, represent normal growth and development.

Incidence of calcaneal apophysitis in the general population

This is the first report on incidence rates of calcaneal apophysitis in general practice, showing an incidence of 3.7 in 1,000 registered patients, which requires more research on pathophysiology and therapy.

Childhood and adolescent sports-related overuse injuries.

Youth sports participation carries an inherent risk of injury, including overuse injuries, and diagnostic modalities include plain film radiography, bone scan, computed tomography, single photon emission computed tomographic, and magnetic resonance imaging.

Heel raises versus prefabricated orthoses in the treatment of posterior heel pain associated with calcaneal apophysitis (Sever's Disease): study protocol for a randomised controlled trial

This study seeks to compare the clinical efficacy of some currently employed treatment options for the relief of disability and pain associated with posterior heel pain in children with the clinical diagnosis of calcaneal apophysitis or Sever's disease.

Can we make a diagnosis with radiographic examination alone in calcaneal apophysitis (Sever's disease)?

The radiologic identification of calcaneal apophysitis without the absence of clinical information was not reliable and Radiologic findings that were attributed to Sever's disease showed a wide variation between independent observers and between separate readings by the same observer.

Heel pain in a young adolescent baseball player.

Aspects of treatment for posterior heel pain in young athletes

It is important to perform a thorough evaluation of each young athlete with heel pain to determine the appropriate diagnosis and to treat the deficits found and allow for a gradual progression to training.

Diagnosis of heel pain.

Differentiating among causes of heel pain can be accomplished through a patient history and physical examination, with appropriate imaging studies, if indicated.

The Football Association medical research programme: an audit of injuries in academy youth football

This study has highlighted the nature and severity of injuries that occur at academy level, and the third part of the audit process now needs to be undertaken: the implementation of strategies to reduce the number of injuries encountered at this level.
