Also known as Sever’s disease, Calcaneal Apophysitis presents as heel pain and is caused by an inflammation of the heel’s growth plate. A growth plate is the cartilaginous part of the end of a growing bone. Over time, the cartilage cells transform into hardened bone cells, forming a fully-mature length of bone.
