Common Foot Problems for Children
Since your child’s feet are still growing, any problems that occur before the ages of 13-15 should be addressed by an expert foot doctor, as your child’s feet will generally stop growing between those ages. There are a number of conditions that can affect your child’s feet. Some common ones include:
- Ingrown toenails
- Flat feet
- Growth plate inflammation
- Sever’s disease – growth plate inflammation in the heel – is the most common of pediatric foot conditions, especially if your child is active in sports. With this condition, your child may complain about pain in the heel during and after a game or practice.
Active children are also more prone to flat feet, which can often cause pain in the feet and lower legs. Many general practitioners misdiagnose this problem as simply being “growing pains,” which is why we recommend that you see a foot doctor with your child in the event that he or she experiences any foot or ankle pain.
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.
