CHILDREN’S FEET & GROWING PROBLEMS
The growing child can present with many conditions which are of concern to the parents and the child themselves. Conditions which are commonly seen in children include growing pains in the legs and feet, flat feet, heel pain, in and out toeing gait and knocked knees. In most cases these conditions are treated conservatively. It is important to remember that a child in not a small adult, they have a different anatomy and metabolic system. It is important to assess all children individually and whilst some conditions are inherited all children like all adults are different.
