If you are unsure about your child’s foot development, or if his pediatrician has suggested that there may be foot problems developing, you need a trusted podiatrist to evaluate the situation. Contact Dr. Salma Aziz’s office today for quality pediatric foot care. At our office, we understand that having your child see a doctor that you can trust is integral in your health care experience.
We see children for a large variety of foot issues, including injuries. Some of the most common developmental issues we see are:
Many toddlers begin walking on their toes instead of using the whole foot. This practice typically corrects itself as your toddler continues learning how to walk. However, some intervention may be necessary if your child continues toe walking after some time or only toe walks with one side.
This condition is when your child walks with his or feet turned inward instead of straight. This is another practice that is typically normal while your child is learning to walk, but should be adjusted after some time.
Your child is actually born with flat feet, because the arches develop sometime around the toddler years, soon after he or she starts walking. If flat feet persist into early childhood, it can cause pain for your child.
