Children's Foot Problems

For babies and newborns

Often I'm asked, "When is the best time to have my future child's feetchecked?"

I answer, "If it is a breach birth, let us check before the child'shead comes out!"

Early treatment is essential for most conditions of the feet seen inchildren and newborns. Their feet are pliable and correctable often withnon-surgical techniques. What are some of these conditions?

               1.  Intoeing...due to many factors
               2.  Clubfoot
               3.  Equinas, or toe walking
               4.  Crooked toes
               5.  Calcaneal valgus and delayed walking
               6.  Ingrown toenails
               7.  Flatfeet
               8.  Bunions
               9.  Curved feet
               

Pleas feel free to call for a checkup for you and your baby.


 

In newborns, watch out for curved feet.
