If you think that you or your child may be suffering from Sever's disease, it is essential to consult with a doctor. They will be able to properly diagnose and treat the condition. There are some different treatment options available depending on the severity of the injury. You don't have to suffer from the pain any longer, so be sure to get it checked out as soon as possible. Some common treatments include:

Proper rest: This is often one of the best things you can do for the injury. You may need to take a few days or even weeks off from your sports or other activities. Avoiding activities that put tension on the heel will give it time to heal properly.

Stretching: Stretching exercises can help improve
range of motion and flexibility. By stretching the Achilles tendon and calf muscles, you can help take some of the pressure off of the heel. This can, in turn, help reduce the amount of pain you are feeling.

Use of ice: Applying ice to the affected area can
help reduce inflammation and pain. You can use ice packs or even frozen peas wrapped in a towel. You should do this for 20-30 minutes at a time,
several times a day.

NSAIDs drug: Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs
(NSAIDs) can help reduce pain and inflammation. This includes over-the-counter options such as ibuprofen or naproxen. Be sure to consult with your doctor before taking any medication, as there may be side effects.

Comfy shoes: Wearing the best type of shoes for
Sever's disease can help reduce strain on the heel. Shoes with good arch support and cushioning can help absorb some of the impacts. You may also want to consider using orthotics or heel pads to help with the
pain.

Cast or braces: In some severe cases, your doctor
may recommend the use of a cast or brace. This can help immobilize the foot and reduce strain on the heel. If you do need to wear a cast or brace, be sure to follow your doctor's instructions.

Now that you know more about Sever's disease and its treatments, you can be proactive in preventing it.

FAQS

Answers to the most frequently asked questions are just a click away.

How long does Sever's Disease last?

+-

Sever's Disease typically lasts for around two weeks to two months with appropriate rest and treatment. However, if the condition is left untreated, it can stay for much longer. One of the things you can do to help prevent Sever's Disease from coming back is to wear supportive shoes that fit properly and have good arch support.

How do I know if I have Sever's Disease?

+-

There are a few symptoms that are typically associated with Sever's Disease. These include heel pain, swelling in the heel area, and discomfort when walking or running. If you experience any of these symptoms, it's important to see a doctor so they can properly diagnose the condition. You should also immediately see a doctor if the pain is severe or lasts for more than a couple of weeks.

Who can diagnose Sever's Disease?

+-

A doctor or medical professional will be able to diagnose Sever's Disease. They will likely ask about your symptoms and how long you've been experiencing them. They may also order x-rays to rule out other conditions that may be causing the pain. Once they have a diagnosis, they can develop a treatment plan that's right for them.

Can I use custom orthotics with KURU shoes?

+-

Due to the anatomical shape of the KURUSOLE, custom orthotics with a rounded heel fit best inside our shoes. If the underside of the custom orthotic (the part that sits on the footbed) is squared off, then it may not fit into our deep heel cup—which is rounded like your foot.

That said, many of our customers tell us the KURUSOLE technology offers better support and stability than they expected, and that they don't need to wear their custom orthotics with KURU shoes.
