If your child is complaining of tired feet or you think there may be a problem, read these important facts about foot care for children. The feet of young children are soft and pliable. Abnormal pressures placed on a young foot can cause foot changes and deformities.
During the first year of life, a child’s feet grow extremely fast. If you notice any issues with your infant’s foot, be sure to have them checked by Dr. Yanovskiy. Remember, it is better to have the feet checked than to let a problem continue during the growing phase of childhood.
Your child should be seen by a podiatrist if:
- There is uneven shoe wear;
- Feet have evidence of lumps or bumps;
- There is pain in the feet or legs;
- Tripping and falling occur regularly;
- There are skin or toenail problems.
