Hi! I suspect my 11 year old dd might have the start of Sever's pain as her heel has been hurting while vaulting. I read through the thread at the top of this forum. It was really helpful. I also read through the protocol that involves massage, stretching, icing, and compression. For those of you who have tried it, when do you do the massage? Should we wait until after practice? If she has a late Friday night practice and an early morning Saturday practice, should we wait until after the Saturday practice? Am I overthinking this? Thanks!
