Eight causes of children’s leg and foot pain
With the school year now well underway, you may notice your child complaining of foot and/or leg pain with them now having to wear shoes all day.
Your child should see a podiatrist if you notice any of the following;
- Heel pain
- Leg pain at night or during the day
- Tiptoe walking
- Toenail pain
- Uneven shoe wear pattern
- Blistering on the feet after playing sport
- Skin lesions i.e warts
- Flat feet or high arched feet
A podiatrist will be able to provide advice on healthy foot care and development and answer any questions you may have. They can also provide advice on the fitting of school and sports shoes.
