Child foot problems usually exhibit pain or deformity but can show both symptoms. Flat feet are the most common deformity and if there is no pain, no treatment needs to be sought. However if it results in pain and stiffness then the problem will not go away on its own and professional treatment needs to be found. Another childhood foot problem is toeing in and out which can result from abnormal hip, leg or foot alignment. The causes of and subsequent treatment of toeing in and out is easily determined and can be resolved quickly. Children, like adults can also suffer from heel pain which is also a result of over use. Treatment is easy through inserts and physical therapy.
