Severs Disease Treatment Market Is Driven By Rising Incidence Of Heel Pain In Children

Severs disease, also known as calcaneal apophysitis, is a common cause of heel pain in children. It occurs due to inflammation of the growth plate at the back of the heel bone. The common symptoms include pain in one or both heels, especially after periods of activity or exercise. Children aged 5 to 10 years are at increased risk of developing Severs disease as the growth plate cartilage is still growing at this stage. Growing participation in sports activities by children is also contributing to the rising incidence of heel pain.
