Expert Care for Your Child's Lifelong Healthy Feet

Your children are not immune to foot problems, which is why Advanced Foot & Ankle Wellness Center also offers children's foot care in King of Prussia, PA, and the Wayne, PA, area. Because your child is still growing, growth plates are present in the feet that make addressing foot conditions early critical to a healthy and full recovery.

Even if you don’t feel like your child’s foot problem is serious, it may be more serious than you think, which makes seeing a foot doctor crucial.

Because your child’s feet are still growing, any problems that occur before the ages of 13-15 should be addressed by an expert foot doctor. Typically, your child’s feet will stop growing between the ages of 13 and 15, so any problems that occur before this age should certainly be addressed.

Foot Conditions That Affect Children

There are a number of conditions that can affect your child’s feet. Ingrown toenails, flat feet, growth plate inflammation, and warts are some of the most common ones. Sever’s disease – growth plate inflammation in the heel – is the most common of these conditions, especially if your child is active in sports. Typically, the complaint is about pain in the heel during and after a game or practice.

Active children are also more prone to flat feet, which can often cause pain in the feet and lower legs. Many general practitioners misdiagnose this problem as simply being “growing pains,” which is why we recommend that you see a foot doctor with your child in the event that he or she experiences any foot or ankle pain.

Available Treatments

Typically, we can find a solution for your child’s foot pain on the first visit. For a condition such as flat feet, your child may simply need custom orthotics to support their feet. Your child’s feet are unique and still growing, so allow us to help you by getting your child back to the activities he or she loves to do without the pain of having a foot condition.
