If the patient came into my practice with Sever's, I would use a heel lift of between 3 and 5 mm inside shoes with a good heel (leather school shoes or runners) combined with stretching and ice therapy.
I'm sure there are others out there who have seen millions more Sever's patients than I, but that's my 2 cents worth anyways... Hope it hasn't been entirely useless! :)
I've treated loads of Severs over the years. I use rigid orthoses rather than a plain heelraise, and tend not to go overboard on the stretching, but your treatment regime sounds about right to me :) !
