Caring for Kids’ Feet

Barefoot childrenFrom hopscotch to hide and seek to jump rope, leap frog, and freeze tag, kids are always on the go, which means they’re always on their feet. That’s why children’s foot care is so important—so they can stay active and healthy as well as avoid problems down the road.

A great place to let kids get their energy out is The Children’s Museum of Denver. There they can not only run around and explore, but let their imaginations run wild too!

A great place to ensure kids’ feet stay healthy so they can continue having fun is Podiatry Associates, P.C. We are committed to providing quality foot care for the whole family!

Children’s feet need special care as they grow so it’s important to have regular check-ups. As your little one’s feet develop, we can keep an eye out for any congenital conditions that need treatment, proper bone alignment, and possible issues like flat feet, in-toeing, and out-toeing, and Sever’s disease.

Other children’s conditions we can help with include:

  • Warts

  • Athlete’s foot

  • Hand, foot, and mouth disease (viral infection causing a rash)

  • Kohler’s disease (bone disorder)

  • Freiberg’s disease (growth plate injury)

  • Clubfoot

  • Gordon’s syndrome (toe joint affliction)

  • Tarsal Coalition (fused bones)

  • Osteochondroma (benign growths)

We can also provide you with tips on appropriate footwear as it is essential that kids have shoes that fit properly to avoid such problems as blisters, ingrown toenails, and bunions for example.

Bring your kids (if you can catch ‘em!) to Dr. O for children’s foot care to keep their feet healthy and strong. Make an appointment at our Castle Pines, Cherry Creek, or Parker, CO offices by calling (303) 805-5156 or by using our online request form.
