Growth Disorder

Growth Disorder

Most of us are born with symptom-free feet. But at one time or another, as we age, three quarters of us will be affected by a foot ailment. Many of these problems can be avoided with proper foot care as a child. Periodic consultations with your podiatric physician can help to anticipate and resolve your child’s foot problems and generally guide the child to a lifetime of foot comfort and health. Neglecting foot health invites problems in other parts of the body, such as the legs and back.

Pediatric Foot Deformity Types

Pediatric foot deformity describes a range of conditions that may affect the bones, tendons, and muscles of the foot. Those include (but not limited to):

• Cavus foot 

• Tarsal coalition 

• Clubfoot

• Accessory navicular 

• Juvenile bunion

Treatment of these foot deformities in children can vary significantly from that needed in adults. Pediatric Podiatrists who specialize in this field can provide a range of non-operative and operative techniques for the needs of the child, which includes attention to preserving the integrity of the growth plate. This allows continued growth and proper development of the foot.
