The Importance of Foot Care for Children

Tuesday, January 2, 2018

Foot pain in children is something every parent should monitor. Some parents may attribute this to growing pains. The need for orthotics in children can present itself in a variety of ways, including the following:

  • Flat feet
  • Walking on tiptoes
  • Bumps
  • Aching feet
  • Leg pain
  • In-toeing or out-toeing

In cases where children are experiencing pain, it’s important to have them see a doctor as soon as possible. Proper diagnosis of the foot pain is important for their bodies and to encourage healthy growing feet. Azilda Family Foot Care has a special program designed to help children in need of orthotics while saving parents money.

The Outgrowth Program

Most parents are well aware of the fact that their children outgrow their shoes just as quickly as they buy them. After a child has outgrown two shoe sizes, their custom orthotics will no longer fit their foot properly. The Outgrowth program was designed precisely for this. After parents buy the first pair of orthotics, the second and third pair are offered at a discount, making it more affordable to properly care for your child’s feet.

Our Friendly and Helpful Team

The team at Azilda Family Foot Care is dedicated to helping children feel their best and avoid permanent problems with the help of orthotic inserts. Make an appointment if any of the following issues arise:

  • Pain in a new area of the foot
  • Foot problems related to sports
  • Discomfort or aches while wearing shoes or walking barefoot
  • Leg, hip, or back pain

Don’t hesitate to get your child the services he or she needs. Addressing your child’s foot health as soon as possible can help your child lead a fuller life without hindering his or her abilities to play and participate in sports and other activities.
