Default Sever's

I have a patient who is an 11 year old elite gymnast (elite for NZ anyway haha) who has Sever's disease. Her pain has not improved at all in the past 4-6 weeks.

Could anyone provide, or point me in the direction of some things to try with her i.e. DNM techniques, K-tape method etc

Kind Regards

Mike

Has the gymnast reduced activity or changed her training regimen in any marked way since starting PT?

Yep, She has decreased her training volume. Less repetitions on floor and vault. I have talked to her coach about this. She is stopping when it gets too sore. She is also not taking part in her p.e. classes at school, to decrease the training load.

Her symptoms are mainly in her right heel but beginning to get it in her left.

Cheers

Mike
