Since first described by Dr. James Sever in 1912, Sever’s Disease is a condition that typically affects children ages 8 – 14 and has been thought to be an inflammation of the growth plate. Characterized by pain the Achilles heel and tendon, treatments normally include immobilization of the foot and ankle through the use of cast-boots and restraint from physical activity.
Dr. Bodor formulated a new theory on its pathogenesis, and has developed a highly-successful treatment program. 40 children are, or have been, participants in the Sever’s Disease Study to-date, with 90% experiencing almost complete resolution of symptoms after just 2 weeks.
