Sever’s Disease in Gymnasts
Posted on by Tara Hackney, PT, DPT, OCS, KTTP
Many young kids that participate in sports can have complaints of pain in their heels.

Young gymnasts fall into this category, and they also practice and compete barefoot, which can lead to a higher risk of injury to the foot.
