“Don’t worry – they grow out of it “. is a common response to parent’s concerns about the development of their children’s feet or legs.
In some cases this can be true, however as children grow up their feet and legs undergo various stages of development. Your podiatrist will be able to advise you whether your child’s development falls within acceptable limits for their age, or if treatment may be required.
Don’t dismiss your child’s consistent complaints of aches as “Just growing pains”. The reason for persistent aches and cramps can sometimes be due to poor foot or leg posture.
