When Should You Take Your Child to a Podiatrist?
Parents make every effort to ensure that their children get the care and attention they need. The first haircut, the first visit to the dentist and first check-up are big milestones! What about children’s feet though? They may not be getting the attention they deserve.
Drs. Joel Brook and David Northcutt, foot specialists at Dallas Podiatry Works treat patients of all ages. We see many children come through our doors with minor to major foot and ankle problems. Healthy feet are important to the overall health in adults and children alike. Foot pain is not normal so here are a few reasons your child may need their first visit to a podiatrist:
- You notice a decline in their activity level or they are sitting out often
- You notice a limp while they walk or an abnormality in their gait while walking or running
- They complain of their shoes being uncomfortable
- They complain of foot pain while at rest or during activity
If your child needs foot and ankle care, you can be confident in the expert care he or she will receive at our podiatric office. Our warm and friendly staff goes to every length to make every patient’s visit as comfortable as possible. Our doctors will ensure parents are informed of every step of the evaluation process and part of the treatment plan decisions.
