A child’s feet and ankles are very pliable, which means that they are subject to injury and deformities that could be the result of any abnormal pressure due to tight shoes or covering that will restrict the development and growth of the feet. As a parent, you want to always take this into consideration as you are shoe shopping and while you are taking notice of they way that you child is walking and developing. This is where Mill Creek Foot and Ankle Clinic can come in and help with pediatric foot and ankle concerns, treatment and surgery in Lake Stevens.
Any swelling that may start to develop for some unknown reason could be a sign of a much more serious condition and it should be checked out by a podiatrist. There are also certain foot deformities that a child could be born with, including club foot, which always requires early medical intervention to make sure that it can be addressed properly.
Believe it or not, issues with the feet and ankles are some of the most overlooked health conditions that people have. Instead of ignoring the problems that your child has with their feet or if there seems as though there is trouble walking, discomfort or swelling, you always need to talk with a podiatrist.
