Foot pain and symptoms in children are not common compared to adults because of the flexibility and resilience of their tissues. Ingrown toenails can occur and will likely need appropriate treatment. Growing pains in the legs are a common complaint often causing a deep aching pain in the legs during the night. Calcaneal apophysitis (Sever’s disease) and Osgood-schlatters disease are two common problems that children have because of their rapid growth. Plantar Warts are also a very common and easily treatable problem.
Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics has successfully been treating children for several decades. Dr. Hardy's Toronto Foot clinic attracts a lot of families due to our friendly nature. All of the female Chiropodists whom I employ have the 'Special Touch' when it comes to dealing with children.
