Because this week is Every Kid Healthy Week, today Dr. Hubert Lee at CarePlus Foot & Ankle Specialists in Bellevue, WA is discussing some of the most common pediatric foot and ankle issues and what you need to be on the lookout for.
You should still familiarize yourself with some of the most common pediatric foot and ankle issues so you can take the proper steps to prevent them from happening.
We find that children who are experiencing foot problems may not always know how to tell others what they are feeling; however, some non-verbal cues may suggest that something is wrong. This may be the case if your child:
You should also keep an eye on your child’s walking gait patterns to see if their feet are pointing outward or inward when walking and see if they keep walking on their toes after the first 2-3 months.
The bottom line is that you should always seek professional care when your child is experiencing any type of foot or ankle pain. As they are still growing and developing, all issues need to be addressed right away to prevent any long-lasting problems.
