Pediatric flat feet

Flat feet occur because the tissues that support the joints in the foot weaken.

As the children grow, the tissues tense up and form the plantar arch, more or less at two or three years of age. Aging, overuse, injury or disease can cause tendon damage and cause a flat foot to develop.

Do you suffer from ankle pain?

It is often due to a sprain, but it can also be caused by ankle instability, arthritis, gout, tendinitis, fracture, compression of a nerve, infection, tumor and structural malalignment of the leg or foot.

The initial treatment may consist of resting, putting on ice, raising and immobilizing the leg, including anti-inflammatory drugs or physiotherapy and, in severe cases, surgical procedures.
