Since many foot disorders are inherited, many foot problems can be diagnosed, treated, or prevented early on, especially if adults have these problems in the family. Issues common for children include: sport injuries, performance issues, growth plate injuries, warts, and ingrown toenails. With gentle care and patience, these problems can be cared for. There are techniques designed to keep the patient comfortable and active. These techniques can also offer permanent cures or preventions of injuries in the future. After you have been educated on your child’s condition, children’s orthotics, special shoes, and/or procedures rarely involving local anesthesia can be employed with your approval. If you have a pediatrician, they will be kept informed of the problems and treatment results so they can remain involved in your child’s care.
