Calcaneal Apophysitis is another name for Sever’s Disease. Sever’s disease is a frequent cause of heel pain in kids. As the heel’s growth plate changes, it can become inflamed due to stresses and strains, such as sports or walking. Children usually feel tenderness and pain in the back and or bottom of the heel when walking or playing, and it is sore to the touch. It can happen in just one heel, or both.
