Healthy Feet Keep Your Children Happy!

If you have children, then you know that life can get busy. Busy from day-to-day happenings, school activities, sports, and unpredictable sickness. That’s a lot to deal with and so it’s not surprising that some foot related conditions go ignored. It’s important to remember that healthy feet will keep your children happy and ultimately pain free on a daily basis.

You can start promoting foot health in your children when they are born. When children are born, their feet are soft and flexible. Their feet will grow fast during the first year and pressures or injury can result in change to the feet. Regularly check your children’s feet for abnormalities and watch as they begin to walk. Both of these can help you detect anything unusual.

A few common conditions Dr. Marco Vargas sees in children include intoeing, club foot, flat foot and Sever’s disease. Some of these conditions are noticeable either at birth or throughout childhood.

  • Intoeing is when the feet point inward instead of straight out.
  • Club foot is when the feet point down and inward.
  • Flat foot happens one or both of the feet do not have arches. All babies’ feet are flat at first, but by age three the arches should have formed.
  • Sever’s disease happens when injury occurs to the growth plate in the heel. It’s a common cause for children’s heel pain.

Dr. Vargas and his team of podiatrists at Foot & Ankle Associates can help keep your children’s feet healthy. They have years of expertise in treating common conditions in children’s feet. The key is to start identifying your children’s foot issues early on and don’t delay the treatment.

If your child is struggling with one of the foot conditions mentioned, please do not hesitate to contact our office. To schedule an appointment at one of our podiatric offices, call toll free (888) 784-5335 or our Sugar Land office at (281) 313-0090.

Also, take your children to Sugar Land’s Youth in Philanthropy’s Healthy Children Fort Bend Style Celebration on Saturday, February 23 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Town Square. The event is to create awareness for healthy children and healthy eating.
