There can be a number of issues with a child’s feet and development that can be determined right at the time of birth. However, they are not always going to disappear on their own. It is never a good idea to wait until your child starts to walk to address a problem that could already have been corrected. Working with Mill Creek Foot and Ankle will help with pediatric foot and ankle concerns, treatment and surgery in Snohomish.
If you ever find that your child is complaining about discomfort in the feet or ankles, it is crucial that you make an appointment for an examination right away. There may not always be complaints being made by your child, so you have to take notice of how he or she is moving and walking.
Maybe you have a child who is involved with sports and there has been some strenuous activity that has brought on some swelling, discomfort or even pain. You should always make an appointment to see a professional so that the issue can be treated immediately. There is never anything good that can come out of waiting too long to treat a foot or ankle issue. In some situations, a foot problem that is left untreated can lead to a much more complex problem that could lead to surgery.
