Shaumbrug Foot Care

When it comes to handling kids foot conditions, it’s important to realize that they suffer from many of the same problems that adults do. At AFP Podiatry Roselle, we not only take great pride in our commitment to our Shaumbrug foot care, but also to making the experience a less stressful and frightening one for your child. Our pediatric foot doctor is up to the challenge of providing safe and effective treatment for kids in an environment that is welcoming and friendly.

One common foot condition that affects children is flat feet, occurring when he or she has insufficient or nonexistent arches. Not every case of flat feet will result in symptoms. In some instances, your child will simply outgrow it and there will be no need for treatment. But if she or he developed pain in the feet or legs due to flat feet, this can lead to difficulties walking properly and orthotics may be prescribed as part of our Shaumbrug foot care to provide the needed arch support. Ingrown toenails, often caused by shoes that become tight during growth spurts, can be painful and may become infected. Most common with the big toe, ingrown toenails are when the edge of the nail grows into the surrounding skin instead of over it as it normally would. This problem can be handled right here in our office, with local anesthesia used to prevent any pain during the procedure of trimming the nail and removing it from being inside the skin.

Heel problems may come about during periods of growth, when there is more stress put on the heel bone. The inflammation of the thick and tough tissue that connects the heel bone to the toes is known as plantar fasciitis. When the pain is at the back of the heel, this is called Sever’s Disease. Both can be painful. And plantar warts, skin lesions that occur on the sole, are caused by a virus that is identifiable by tiny black spots within the lesion, can also affect children. Our Shaumbrug foot care is designed to relieve the pain and correct the problem so that your child can walk, run, and play again without any hindrance.
