Pediatric podiatry is a branch of podiatry that deals with the study and analysis of the development of the lower limbs in growing patients.
It is extremely important to know and control the evolution of our children’s feet and legs, as well as the rotational and torsional patterns, since there are times when if we do not control them, they can end up developing more severe pathologies in adulthood (control genu valgo /varus, femoral and tibial torsions, etc).
They are check-ups that are always recommended after 4 years of age, whether or not there are symptoms, and regular check-ups are usually carried out or every 6 months or every year, depending on the case.
Call us, make an appointment and leave your child’s feet in the best hands.
Certain factors that have to make us be alert and make us think that there may be a problem are the following:
-Observe that when they walk they put their feet in or put their toes in as well.
-If when walking or running they have a tendency to stumble and fall easily.
-If they do not want to walk or run since they say they get tired quickly.
-Have pain in the legs or feet (especially in the heel area).
It is advisable to do these revisions until the age of 16-17, which is when the growth plates in our lower extremities close.
