Pediatric Foot Care in Wappingers Falls & Hopewell Junction, NY
Get Your Child Back to the Activities They Love
Adults aren’t the only ones who experience foot problems – children have them, too. It’s important to begin foot care at a young age as children’s feet will carry them for their entire life. Children’s feet typically stop growing in their early teen years, but if there’s an issue with their feet before then, it’s essential to get them checked and treated, if necessary. At Hollowbrook Foot Specialists, P.C. Dr. Schlam and his team are experts at pediatric foot care in Wappingers Falls, NY.
Depending on your child’s unique feet and what their symptoms are, we can determine what the problem is and help your child get back to doing the activities they love to do.
Children’s Foot & Ankle Conditions
There are many conditions that can affect your child’s feet, but the most common ones we treat are:
- Ingrown toenails
- Flat feet
- Sports injuries
- In-toeing and Out-toeing
We also specialize in treating children with Low Muscle Tone with the SureStep Dynamic Stabilizing system. SureStep is a light flexible brace that allows and even encourages normal development for children with low muscle tone.
If your child is active in sports, especially soccer or basketball, they may be more prone to a foot problem known as Sever’s Disease. The complaint is usually of pain in the heel during and after a practice or game.
Active children are more inclined to have flat feet, which can often cause pain in the feet and lower legs. Pediatricians will often misdiagnose this type of pain as simple growing pains in the feet. It’s a myth that all children will outgrow being flat-footed. Fortunately, most foot and leg soreness from flat feet can be relieved quite easily with custom foot orthotics or custom insoles. If your child has a condition such as flat feet, custom orthotics may be all that’s needed.
