Examination of children's feet is an integral part of podiatry.
Frequently, children have structural imbalances of the feet
that may go unrecognized and can lead to other deformities and
imbalances within the skeletal system. When detected early,
these imbalances of the feet, some of which are related to the bone
structure, are treated so that a sturdier foundation can be
provided for the later years.
Developmental problems, biomechanical abnormalities and dermatological pathology are examples of typical problems that podiatrists treat in children.
