Many parents worry that their child may not be developing normally or walking correctly.
When caring for infants and children, taking care of their feet probably doesn’t cross your mind as a top priority. However, there are several ailments that can affect a youngster’s feet, and proper steps should be taken to ensure good foot health.
Apparently, feet begin to develop approximately 4 weeks after we are conceived and keep growing until our teenage years. That is one reason it's important to care for our feet from early childhood.
Foot Careutilizes conservative treatment methods to make it as easy as possible to remedy your child’s condition.
We are happy to see your child and will take the time to explain his or her problem in terms that can be understood. We will answer your questions and address any concerns that you have while your child is being treated.
Common Foot Disorders we treat include:
Metatarsus adductus (a foot deformity)
In-toeing or out-toeing
There are many clues and symptoms that can indicate a foot problem, including something as simple as uneven shoe wear. We know well that correct diagnosis and proper treatment is vital for children,since many of these problems can have complications if not treated as they grow into adulthood.
We begin with the gentlest, least invasive approaches and only move to more involved treatments if absolutely necessary. Our doctors will reserve surgery only for a case that does not improve when all other correction options have been tried.
At Foot Care, your child will receive state-of-the-art podiatric care from our compassionate, experienced medical professionals who make certain that you are informed and included in your child’s diagnosis and treatment at every stage.
Good health is all encompassing for infants and children. By adding a few simple steps, you can keep them healthy from head to toe.
