Common Pediatric Foot & Ankle Conditions
There are numerous 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 resolved easily with custom foot orthotics or custom insoles.
Typically, we can find a solution for your child’s foot pain as soon as the first visit. For a condition such as flat feet, your child may simply need custom orthotics to support their feet. Your child’s feet are unique and still growing, so 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.
