Why Children’s Podiatry Matters
Growing pains is a term that you have most likely heard before. Growing pains is a broad term used to refer to many types of pain that a child can experience. In fact, any pain is not normal – they usually indicate an underlying condition.
A popular belief is that children will outgrow pain or whatever symptoms they face as an infant or toddler. However, this is not always the case. Early detection of abnormalities is important to address. Abnormalities may appear in the way your infant sits or the way your toddler walks. If in doubt, just give us a call.

- walk on their tippy-toes?
- have curled toes?
- have toes that overlap?
- have heel pain (sever’s disease)
- have flat feet?
- have high arches?
- walk in-toed (pigeon-toed)?
- complain of aching legs?
- complain of sore knees?
- complain of foot or ankle pain during or after sport?
- suffer from ingrown toenails?
