Pediatric Foot and Ankle Care

Pediatric Foot and Ankle Care Treatment

We take a comprehensive approach to pediatric foot and ankle care

The foot is the infrastructure that supports the body and is responsible for our daily mobility. Often, it tends to be the body part most overlooked for proper care. We encourage parents to be observant of their child’s foot and ankle development beginning at birth, in order to intercept any potential areas of concern.

Parents should remember these basics about children’s feet:

A young child’s feet are very pliable. Foot deformities may result from any abnormal pressure from tight covers or shoes that restrict normal foot growth and development.

  • Shoes should be flexible and properly fitted.
  • Be aware of your child’s walking patterns which may signal a concern.
  • Recurring foot pain is not normal and should not be ignored.
  • Children may suffer pain from flat feet and juvenile bunions.
  • Swelling without explanation may be a sign of a serious condition and should be evaluated.
  • Foot deformities such as clubfoot (an inward turned foot), require early medical intervention.
