The growing limbs of a young child go through several unique developmental changes. The malleability of their partially formed soft bones may lead to a range of issues and conditions as it develops. At a children’s podiatry clinic, a pediatric podiatrist will assess a child’s feet allowing for early podiatric intervention so that long-term problems can be prevented. A check-up at a children’s podiatrist clinic is normally recommended if a child:
- Experiences recurrent pain in their feet or legs
- Has lumps or bumps on their feet
- Walks with their knees knocking together
- Constantly trips and falls
What to expect from a session with a pediatric podiatrist?
A pediatric podiatrist is a professional skilled in the care and development of children’s feet. They are trained specifically to treat conditions of the feet and lower limbs. Depending on the condition or concerns, the podiatrist will assess the child’s age, weight, gait, and more for a proper diagnosis before embarking on any form of a treatment plan. Should there be a need to implement a treatment regime, the children’s podiatrist will develop a comprehensive management plan for maintaining healthy growth into the future. Foot management advice regarding issues from flat feet to in-toeing will also be given.
