As an experienced pediatric foot doctor in Rancho Santa Margarita, Dr. Salma Aziz diagnoses and treats foot and ankle conditions for younger patients in addition to adults.
Since childhood consists of plenty of change and development, it can be difficult to pinpoint podiatric problems and not mistake them for typical growth and development. Seeing an experienced podiatrist can help ease your mind about your child’s development and bring your attention to issues that require further intervention. If your child’s pediatrician suggests that you get an opinion from a podiatrist, or if you are unsure about your child’s foot and ankle development, contact our office today.
It is difficult to pinpoint the exact symptoms you should keep an eye on when it comes to your child’s feet. This is because there is a big range of normal for children of every age and in every stage of development.
If there are any troubles with your child’s feet at birth, his or her pediatrician will notice shortly after and will be able to recommend next steps. As your child grows older, certain problems like toe walking and flat feet can be concerning at first, but eventually resolve after a certain amount of time. However, if these problems are growing more severe or worsening over time, you should contact Dr. Salma Aziz, a pediatric foot doctor in Rancho Santa Margarita for advice. Keep in mind that even if your child is dealing with a developmental foot or ankle issue, extensive treatment is not always needed. In many cases, it is an easy fix to get your child’s feet and ankles healthy and in good shape.
