Due to the stated age at onset, my first thought is to question the diagnosis, and therefore I am reluctant to delineate specific treatments for Sever's. But there is certainly adequate information on such treatment options on the Internet which can be easily found with any search engine. Certainly, if your son does indeed have unremitting Sever's pain, it would be inappropriate for him to be playing baseball or engaging any sport or activity requiring running and/or jumping.
