Feet, ankles and toes that perform as they should allow children to run, walk, sprint, and play without even thinking about it. But when parts of this structure don't perform as they should, a child's body will compensate for the defect as they grow, the result possibly being long term back pain, joint pain, leg pain, balance issues, or problems with coordination.
One of the challenges with pediatric foot care is the child's inability to articulate problems, and for parents to chalk it up to "growing pains" or "you'll grow out of it". It's important for parents to watch for signs of pain, discomfort, frequent falling, problems walking or running, or difficulties with coordination when playing. A problem discovered and treated early can frequently be corrected with simple measures, avoiding a lifetime of complications and possible abnormalities.
