  • CANADIAN PODIATRIST STATES THAT CHILDREN'S FEET SHOULD BE TREATED EARLY

 

CANADIAN PODIATRIST, DR. MARILYN LANGLOIS STATES, "CORRECTING FOOT PROBLEMS IN CHILDREN IS RELATIVELY EASY BECAUSE CHILDREN'S BONES AND JOINTS ARE FLEXIBLE.  BUT LEFT UNTREATED, THESE PROBLEMS CAN CAUSE PAIN AND SEVERE COMPLICATIONS ONCE THE CHILD IS AN ADULT.  EVERY CHILD SHOULD SEE A PODIATRIST FOR AN EVALUATION AROUND THE AGE OF 2 TO 3.  COMMON FOOT AND POSTURE PROBLEMS BEGIN WHEN THE CHILD STARTS TO WALK.  SIGNS OF A PROBLEM ARE FLAT FEET, FEET THAT POINT INWARD OR OUTWARD, EXCESSIVE FALLING WHEN THE CHILD STARTS TO RUN, AND -RARELY, SINCE IT'S LESS COMMON AT A YOUNG AGE - COMPLAINTS OF FOOT OR BACK PAIN."

AT MY FOOT CLINIC I ENCOURAGE ALL OF OUR FOOT SPECIALIST TO HAVE THE CHILDREN EXAMINED BEFORE THE AGE OF THREE.  MANY FOOT CONDITIONS ARE HEREDITARY AND CONDITIONS THAT AN ADULT IS CURRENTLY EXPERIENCING MAY BECOME A PROBLEM IN THEIR OFFSPRING.

 

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES COMPETENT, QUALITY FOOT CARE OR CUSTOM ORTHOTICS, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
