Back to school season is well underway. Children may dread the pain of homework but foot pain can also be something that causes pain for kids. Dr. Reminga goes through a checklist for parents that should be helpful. The development of a child’s foot and lower leg is critical as they go through life. Healthy feet can help to ensure a happy, healthy, and active adult life. The feet and ankles shouldn’t be overlooked when evaluating a child’s health. Kid’s feet and legs develop rapidly so it becomes difficult for parents to know what’s normal and what’s not. A new school year is a good time for parents to bring their children into Northern Foot Care Center. Aside from foot pain and injuries, which should be evaluated and treated as they occur, Dr. Reminga recommends that parents bring their child in to be evaluated once every 6 months from the ages of 4-18. Then, once every year after that.

Now… onto the checklist. There are 4 Warning Signs that parents should look for.

  1. Parents should look at the bottoms of their child’s shoes to determine if the shoes are showing uneven wear patterns on the soles.
  2. Take notice if your child walks irregularly.
  3. Do you notice that your child often trips or stumbles?
  4. Does your child complain of tired legs, night pains and cramping?

Dr. Reminga goes in depth when talking about these warning signs. He talks about foot pain, foot injuries, and “growing pains” for example. You’ll want to listen carefully when he talks about the controversial view on “growing pains” in children. Today’s program will provide parents with valuable insight about their children’s foot health.
