Q I know nothing about feet and I'm wondering if my child needs to be evaluated?
Here are our criteria for which children your be evaluated by our doctors.
-any child over the age of 5 with flat feet. At this point it is no longer 'normal'
-complaints of fatigue or tiredness
- not wanting to wear shoes or socks
-not participating in sports or play
-inability to keep up with peer or family when walking at a normal pace
-a family history of foot problems.
If you are reading this your child should probably be evaluated. Rememeber a visit does not always mean treatment! Often time we can set your fears to rest.
