At The Foot Clinic, we understand that children’s feet require special attention. Our experienced podiatrists are trained to diagnose and treat a variety of foot conditions that can affect children, including flat feet, heel pain, Sever’s disease, plantar warts, and athlete’s foot.
Flat feet are a common condition in children, where the arch of the foot collapses or does not develop properly. This can cause pain, fatigue, and difficulty with certain activities. Our podiatrists can perform a thorough evaluation and recommend appropriate treatment, which may include custom orthotics or specific exercises to strengthen the foot muscles.

Heel pain is another common complaint in children, especially those who are active in sports. This can be caused by a number of factors, including overuse or injury. Our podiatrists can evaluate your child’s foot and determine the cause of the heel pain. Treatment may include rest, ice, compression, and specific exercises to help reduce pain and inflammation.

Sever’s disease is a common condition that affects children between the ages of 8 and 14. It is a painful condition caused by inflammation of the growth plate in the heel bone. Our podiatrists can diagnose Sever’s disease and recommend appropriate treatment, which may include rest, ice, compression, and specific exercises to help reduce pain and inflammation.

Plantar warts are a common viral infection that can affect children’s feet. They are typically small and may appear as black dots or have a rough surface. Our podiatrists can diagnose and treat plantar warts using a variety of methods, including topical medications, freezing, or laser treatment. For information click here.
Athlete’s foot is a fungal infection that can affect the skin on the feet, causing itching, burning, and peeling. Children who are active in sports or spend time in communal areas such as locker rooms or swimming pools are at a higher risk of developing athlete’s foot. Our podiatrists can diagnose and treat athlete’s foot using topical or oral medications, as well as provide recommendations for preventing future infections. For information click here.
