Common Foot and Ankle Ailments for Children

As children’s feet are still growing and developing, problems that occur at a younger age can have much larger consequences as they get older. This is why it is crucial to visit an experienced podiatrist who can recognize common foot and ankle ailments in children and has the knowledge to treat them for effective relief. 

There are quite a few common problems that kids can run into when it comes to their feet, toes, and ankles. The most common Dr. Verville sees at her state-of-the-art practice in Frisco are:

Heal pain icon

Heel pain – If your child has heel pain, it may be caused by some deformation in the heel bone. It can also be caused by a fracture, tumor, or some other infection.

Flat foot icon

Flat feet – This occurs when the feet have an insufficient arch in the middle. While kids are born with very flat feet, they develop their arches later on. For some children, this process may take longer.

Dancing feet icon

Toe-walking – If your child is walking on their tiptoes, it can sometimes be just a “phase” that self-corrects. However, if this habit persists, then treatment may be needed to lengthen the Achilles tendon.

Two feet icon

Pigeon-toe – When someone is “pigeon-toed,” it means that their toes and feet point inward when they walk. While this is sometimes normal for the first two years after the child starts walking, if it persists, treatment may be necessary.

Ingrown toenail icon

Ingrown toenails – There are few conditions more painful than an ingrown toenail. The best course of action is to treat it immediately. Dr. Verville regularly treats ingrown toenails at her podiatry practice in Frisco.

Foot wart icons

Plantar warts – These are warts that appear on the bottom of the feet. Generally, children are much more susceptible than adults to the virus that causes warts. They are also extremely contagious. If you notice warts on your child’s feet, bring them in immediately for treatment.

Seeking Effective Treatment from a Children’s Podiatrist in Frisco

When treating a child’s foot or ankle problem, Dr. Verville always attempts to correct and treat the issue with the most conservative and non-invasive option available. This is what makes her a favorable choice for parents who do not want their children to undergo unnecessary surgery. 

Dr. Verville uses a few different treatment methods, and which is best for your child depends on the type of foot and ankle ailment they have. The most common methods used at RNV Podiatry include:

  • Custom Orthotics – An “orthotic” is a medical device that is shaped to the patient’s body to change how the tissues, bones, and muscles develop. Orthotics can be created to address a wide range of issues, and some orthotics can be worn at night. From shoe inserts and ankle braces to knee braces, Dr. Verville often prescribes orthotics for her patients, including children.
  • Non-Surgical Methods – There are some other types of non-surgical methods that can correct childhood foot and ankle issues. For example, some problems can be corrected just by changing how a child sits on the ground. Dr. Verville will discuss the most optimal non-surgical methods with you to determine which is best for your child.
