Worried about your child’s feet? Here Are Some Tips from Twin Rivers Podiatry Specialists.
Contrary to popular belief with children feet, children don’t always outgrow their foot problems. To keep kid’s feet healthy, prevention and early treatment of foot problems in children and adolescents is extremely important. Regular foot examinations for kid’s feet throughout the growing years are important in identifying problems before they become painful or lead to other more complicated foot conditions down the road.
Some issues we regularly see involving children are:
- Ingrown toenails
- Sports injuries
- Flat feet
- Plantar’s warts
- Gait Problems
Many abnormal foot conditions in children are as not painful, so you may not hear your children complain. But even a non-painful condition can lead to problems when they grow into adults, such as bunions, hammertoes, and heel and arch pain later in life. That is why regular foot examines are critical for children.
Our expert podiatrists provide custom-molded orthotics designed for children. Your doctor will take a mold of your child’s foot at the time of his/her appointment. Your child’s foot is molded in the corrected position, providing the best support possible. The molds are sent to the lab where your child’s custom-molded orthotics are made. We also offer a growth plan so your children can get new orthotics as they grow. Twin Rivers Podiatry believes in the effectiveness of our orthotics over anyone else in the Lehigh Valley.
