Q Should I take my child to see a podiatrist?
Parents understand the importance of keeping their kids healthy.
Yearly check-ups, vision screenings, and dentist appointments are all part of a child’s regular medical care. If something goes awry in between regular appointments, you visit the appropriate provider. Your podiatrist is the go-to person if your child is experiencing foot pain.
The feet are vital to everything that we do, and are especially important for active children. Growing pains are a part of childhood, but foot pain is not normal. If you notice a decline in activity, limping, or an abnormal gait, you should call the office of Drs. Brook and Northcutt immediately. They will examine your child’s feet, and determine the best course of action.
Some symptoms in the feet are indicators of a more serious illness, but many common childhood foot conditions are easily treated. Don’t spend another day worrying about your child’s foot health. Call our Dallas or Plano, TX offices, or schedule an appointment online.
