It is very important to begin foot care from when a child can walk, because these little feet must carry them for their entire lives.

Whether it is a precious baby’s first steps or a quick-maneuvering teenager’s winning soccer goal, healthy feet and sure footedness make milestones in a child’s life possible.

Paying close attention to your little one’s feet from appropriate nail care to the way they walk or run will ensure a solid foundation as your youngster grows. After all, their feet are meant to last a lifetime!


When Should My Child See a Podiatrist?

  • You should bring your child to our office any time your child experiences foot pain or when you or your child notices an abnormality in the appearance of their feet.

What Conditions Does a Podiatrist Treat?

  • Conditions include Pediatric flatfoot, Calcaneal apophysitis (Sever’s disease), Ingrown toenails, Plantar warts, Sports injuries, Ankle sprains, Foot wounds, Athlete’s foot, Toenail fungus.

What are the Best Shoes for My Child?

  • Infants don’t need to wear shoes and should have unlimited freedom of movement to allow their feet to grow and develop normally. Once your child is walking, allow them to walk barefoot inside the house and wear shoes with wide toe boxes when outdoors. A shoe with a wide toe box allows your child’s foot to stretch normally and helps build the muscles of the foot.
