Foot Care For Children

kenosha paddock lake wi pediatric podiatristDid you know that Weil Foot & Ankle Institute of Wisconsin also treats foot conditions in children? Foot conditions don’t just affect adults. Your child’s feet are unique due to the fact that they are still growing, and the presence of growth plates can lead to certain challenges. Addressing your child’s complaint about foot pain early is critical. Even if it seems like a minor problem, it shouldn’t be neglected because oftentimes foot conditions can be more serious than you may think. Typically, your child’s feet stop growing between the ages of 13 and 15. Any foot problem that arises prior to these ages is certainly urgent.

There are many conditions that can affect your child’s feet. Growth plate inflammation, ingrown toenails, warts, and flat feet are just a few of the more common conditions. 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 condition. The complaint is usually of pain in the heel during and after a practice or game.

Flat feet can often cause pain in both the feet and the legs, and active children with flat feet are more prone to experience the symptoms. Pediatricians often mistake this type of pain for 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 flat feet can be relieved quite easily with custom foot orthotics, or custom insoles. At Weil Foot And Ankle Institute of Kenosha and Paddock Lake, WI, we have over a 95% success rate with this treatment, so your child can get back to doing what he or she loves quickly.

Since your child’s feet are unique, they should be put in the hands of a foot specialist. Often, we can recommend a fast remedy for a condition that your pediatrician may be completely unaware of (writing off as “growing pains”) and even more unaware of how to treat. Generally, we recommend early intervention for all foot conditions, particularly for children. If addressed early enough, your child won’t miss a beat – or a game!
