What Do You Do If Your Baby Breaks A Foot?

Children's bones are less brittle than the bones of adults. This is helpful because children fall much more frequently than adults. Usually they aren’t seriously injured, but occasionally even infants can break bones. When a small child breaks a bone, it’s important to go to an expert. If the break is near a growth plate, more treatment may be needed. We offer very small boots so babies can heal while it’s much easier for parents to bathe and dress the child. If the child is older, there are even modifications we can employ to ensure the child will not remove the boot. If you suspect your child has a fractured foot/ankle, we can provide the expert care you need.
