Foot Care For Children
If your child is suffering from foot pain then make sure you seek out professional podiatric doctors who specialize in treating children. Treating children is not the same as treating adults. It requires patience, understanding, a very specialized set of skills and techniques, and a caring heart.
We understand the needs of our younger patients. We specifically tailor their foot care and treatment to their age, growth, personality, and condition.
Children may suffer from the following:
- Club foot
- Flat feet
- Freiberg’s disease
- High arches
- Kohler’s disease
- Sever’s disease
- Toenail fungus
In addition to treating your child, Dr. Kenneth Benjamin and Dr. Jennifer Mullendore will educate you with information to help throughout your child’s adolescence. We will guide you on how to perform regular foot health checks for your child. Children may not express when they have a foot issue. That can lead to further problems down the road. So if you suspect your child has a foot problem or suffers from foot pain, make an appointment at Laser Podiatry Associates in Frederick or Mt. Airy for his or her comprehensive evaluation.
