Pediatric Podiatrist in Auburn, AL
Compassionate Care & Relief for Children’s Foot Issues
Foot problems aren’t restricted to adults. Children experience foot and ankle issues, too. Children’s feet typically stop growing in their early teen years, but if there’s an issue with their feet before then, it’s essential to get them checked and treated if necessary. Dr. Stark of Auburn Foot Care Center is an experienced pediatric podiatrist in Auburn, AL. Depending on your child’s unique feet and what their symptoms are, we can determine what the problem is and help your child get back to doing the activities they love to do.
Most Common Children’s Foot & Ankle Conditions
There are many conditions that can affect your child’s feet, but the most common ones include growth plate inflammation, ingrown nails, flat feet, and warts. 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, they may be more prone to this foot problem. The complaint is usually of pain in the heel during and after a practice or game.
In addition, active children are more inclined to have flat feet, which can often cause pain in the feet and lower legs. Pediatricians will often misdiagnose this type of pain as simple growing pains in the feet. It’s 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 Auburn Foot Care Center, we recommend early intervention for all children’s foot problems, and can usually determine a solution for their pain as soon as the very first visit. If your child has a condition such as flat feet, custom orthotics may be all that’s needed. Let us help your child get back to the activities they love without the pain of having a foot condition.
