KatieScarlett Posted June 12, 2008 Report Share Posted June 12, 2008 My 13 year old daughter was just diagnosed with Sever's Disease. It is a VERY common heal inflammation, usually caused by "pounding" on the feet-such as gymnists or runners. I very highly suspect that it came from running in school PE in the wrong kind of shoes (My DD thought that Vans were ok to run in, rather than the good shoes we bought her). Anyone else have a dancer with this problem? She will get little rest this summer, and I would like advice if anyone has any, on how not to irritate it. She does work through her feet really well, and it usually doesn't bother her when she dances-only running type stuff. Quote Link to comment
