Does your child trip and fall often? Your child’s feet might turn inward or outward when he or she walks, or he or she might have flat feet. Does your child complain of foot pain or suffer from ingrown toenails? If you answered “yes” to any of these questions, you should watch this video to find out what foot condition your child might be suffering from so that you can learn about the possible treatment options.

When children have trouble walking or pain in their feet, it could be caused from overuse or injuries. However, many foot problems are hereditary foot conditions that are passed down from parents or grandparents. In order to treat your child’s foot problem, a podiatrist should diagnose your child as early as possible. Your son or daughter might just need to wear special shoes or inserts; however, surgery might be necessary in some cases.

At Fixing Feet Institute, our highly trained podiatrists have experience treating children’s foot problems—even infants. If you would like your child to be evaluated, contact our Surprise, Arizona office to make an appointment at 623.584.5556 or contact us online at
