Can physical therapy correct children’s foot problems?

Physical therapy relieves children's foot pain!Physical therapy is an extremely helpful treatment modality that can be used for many different problems at all different ages. Many of the most common foot problems growing up can be treated conservatively. Like adults, children can suffer from overuse and other injuries. Physical therapy is designed to stretch out tightness, improve foot function and range of motion, and strengthen limbs overall. This can definitely benefit children who are suffering from foot problems.

First you must have your son or daughter’s lower limbs evaluated to be sure that physical therapy is really what he or she needs. In some cases, your child might need other treatments first. Our team at Podiatry Associates, P.C. will perform a variety of tests to identify the cause of the problem and determine what care methods will be most helpful. If physical therapy is what your child needs, we’ll help him or her learn how to perform the exercises correctly. Use our website or call (303) 805-5156 to make an appointment at one of our offices in Castle Pines, Cherry Creek, Denver, or Parker, CO.
