Severs Pain Elimination:
Seven Week Training Program
Seven Week Training Program
Our program teaches young athletes how to rapidly strengthen their way out of Severs pain in their heels and get back to playing the sport they love pain free in a matter of days or weeks.
Suitable for athletes of all ages, this program can be completed at home in minutes a day. Almost all cases see a rapid reduction in pain over the first two weeks with pain eliminated before the end of the seventh week. It is not uncommon to be completely pain free within the first 1-2 weeks.
This unique program takes a multidimensional approach to treat the root cause of Severs Disease; In each session, you and your child will cure your heel pain with a combination of self-massage, flexibility, age-appropriate strengthening and movement skill training. These elements will not only drastically reduce your pain but also help minimise the risk of any future Severs flare up.
We will provide you with all the information and support needed to complete the program, along with a day-by-day checklist helping you every step of the way as you cure Severs Disease forever.
Learn about the program from head coach Durham McInnis
I’m just writing to thank Core Advantage for this great program. This past summer my 10 year-old daughter was diagnosed with OS, and our doctor said rest was the only real treatment. There was a real possibility of her missing her upcoming soccer season, which was a huge blow to her. We were sent a link to this program by a coach, and decided to give it a try.
What a great program and it did exactly what it said it would do (which seems like a rarity nowadays!). One week in, her pain was at a level that allowed her to compete in a weekend tournament with her soccer team (a week earlier we weren’t sure we were even going to go). She’s in week seven now, and is playing pain free (she’s recorded 0’s and 1’s for the past three weeks) for the first time in months. On top of that, she’s learned more about training, about when she needs to slow things down and listen to her body, but also what her true capabilities are.
Thank you, Core Advantage! I can definitely say, as a customer, that we got a lot more out of this product than we paid. Thank you again!

Frequently Asked Questions
How effective is this program?
Incredibly. We rarely meet a case of Severs that isn’t drastically improved or eliminated within 7 weeks of starting this program.
Most commonly athletes will see a 50% or greater reduction in their pain levels in the first 2-4 weeks with a steady drop to zero pain by the end of the seven weeks.
It’s important to state that this program is designed specifically for Severs Disease presenting as localised pain in the heels and Achilles. Other diagnoses and pathologies may not respond as well to this program as Severs does. Be sure to have your heel pain diagnosed by a medical professional before beginning this program.
Is this program safe for children and teenagers?
With 9-16 years old being the peak age range for Severs we have built the program accordingly and it will therefore suit perfectly.
The key thing to succeeding with this program is making sure you follow the instructions with precision and sensibly reload into sport.
How much does it cost, and how is the payment structured?
The entire program can purchased for a single upfront payment, in the currency of your choice. There is no ongoing membership fees and you retain lifetime access to the program after the seven weeks are completed.
We have aimed to keep the price of the program no more than a single consultation with a physical therapist or physiotherapist in most countries.
Typically, what results should a Severs athlete expect with this program?
Athletes with Severs come in all shapes and sizes, however the most common presentation is rapidly growing girls or boys, between 10-16 years of age, playing a high volume of sport with great intensity.
These young athletes often present with pain levels of around seven out of ten when they start this program. Within the first seven days their pain is reduced by 50%. By day 21 most athletes are at a one or zero out of ten. By the end of the seven weeks the vast majority of athletes do not get any Severs pain again.
Can I keep playing sport while doing this program?
You should be fine to keep playing and training, however it often helps to cut back by around 10% or even just take 72 hours of rest from running and jumping at the start of the program to let the heels calm down enough that you can actually start strengthening the calves.
What about Skiing and Cycling?
As with sport it often helps to cut back these activities by 10% or more at the start of the program to let the knee calm down enough that you can actually start strengthening the quadriceps.
Through the program we will teach you the best way to re-introduce these activities gradually into your routine.
How important is the movement skill component of the program?
Very very important! Tall young athletes often run like baby Giraffes. They desperately need movement skill training. Unfortunately, part of the reason Severs Disease has become more common is that movement skill is at an all-time low as junior athletes do much less exploratory play (Climbing trees, playing tag, etc) and are almost exclusively either on screens and the couch or on a court in a structured sportinsg situation with less general play than any other generation.
Does this program work for adults?
Our online training program was written with children in mind but there is no reason it wouldn’t still work for an adult case of Severs.
We have had a few adults try the program and get great results, relieving their pain and increasing their function in daily life and sport.
However Severs is quite rare in adults so before starting the program we strongly recommend you get a medical opinion to confirm it is in fact Severs that is causing your heel pain as this program is less effective for other injuries or diagnoses.
How did Core Advantage come up with this program?
The short answer is necessity.
The eastern suburbs of Melbourne, Australia are home to more registered junior Basketballers than anywhere else in the world. The popularity of Basketball, plus other tall athlete sports such as Netball, Australian Rules Football and Cricket, means that growing diseases such as Severs and Osgood Schlatters are very prevalent in Melbourne. On top of that great need, we also have the good fortune of being able to work with some of the best researchers in the field who also happen to live in our city.
All we had to do was join the dots from sports science to strength and conditioning and refine it with practical application to our Severs prone population. This program is the culmination of that hard work, lots of case studies and the luck of timing and location.
