The most common adult podiatric pathologies can often be genetically transferred to patients' offspring. In these scenarios, if the issue is identified and treated early enough, a child can potentially reduce the risk of pathologic development in the future. Louis DeCaro, DPM, vice president of the American College of Foot and Ankle Pediatrics and member of the surgical staff at Franklin Medical Center and Holyoke Hospital, MA discussed how to identify signs of adult podiatric pathologies in the pediatric populations at the Pedorthic Footcare Association Annual Symposium and Exhibition.

Dr. Louis DeCaro

 

According to DeCaro, there are 10 main pathologies in the adult population that can predict potential issues as children mature in adulthood. These pathologies are: calluses, plantar fasciitis, knee replacements, hip replacements, neuromas, bunions, posterior tibial dysfunction, tarsal tunnel syndrome, hammertoes, and lower back pain.
