Children Should Have Happy Feet!
A child is never too young or too old to have their feet checked. If your child is complaining about pain or discomfort while doing a sport activity, or any activity for that matter, listen to them. Make sure they have the appropriate shoe wear and the appropriate size since children’s feet are constantly growing.
“A sports medicine podiatrist can offer a thorough examination of the entire lower extremity, and identify a leg length imbalance, weakness, or biomechanical imbalances that may need to be addressed to prevent injuries on the athletic field.”
