Pediatric Foot Care in Cumming, GA
Compassionate Care for Your Child’s Health & Comfort
Kids can have foot and ankle problems, too. Children’s feet usually stop growing early into their teen years, but if there’s an issue with their feet before then, it’s important to get them checked and treated if necessary. Forsyth Foot & Ankle Associates is a 5-star-rated provider of pediatric foot care in Cumming, GA. Depending on your child’s unique feet and what his or her symptoms are, we can determine what the problem is and help your child get back to doing the activities he or she loves to do!
Common Pediatric Foot & Ankle Conditions
There are many conditions that can affect your child’s feet. Common issues can include growth plate inflammation, ingrown nails, flat feet, and warts. Growth plate inflammation in the heel, or Sever’s disease, is the most common. If your child is active in sports, especially soccer or basketball, he or she may be more prone to this foot problem. The complaint is usually of pain in the heel during and after a practice or game.
Active children are also more prone to having flatfoot, which can often cause pain in the feet and lower legs. Pediatricians will often misdiagnose this type of pain as simple growing pains in the feet. It is a myth that all children will outgrow being flat-footed. Fortunately, most foot and leg soreness from flatfoot can be relieved quite easily with custom foot orthotics, or custom insoles.
We can usually find a solution for your child’s foot pain as soon as the very first visit. If your child has a condition such as flatfoot, custom orthotics may be all that is needed. We recommend early intervention for all foot problems, particularly for children. Allow us to help you by getting your child back to the activities he or she loves to do without the pain of having a foot condition.
