We had a pediatric foot screening clinic on Wednesday! We were happy so many people decided to come visit us. It's important for everyone to take care of their feet, but it’s especially important for kids. When we see parents with foot problems one question we often ask is, “who did you give your feet to?” because usually foot shape is passed down from one generation to the next. So, if a father has foot pain from excessively flat feet, treating his son with a supportive orthotic can prevent or at least postpone issues from improperly shaped feet. This is one reason we usually take more conservative measures with children, often a small adjustment goes a long way as the foot develops. We’re looking forward to the next clinic we have! If you don’t want to wait, call our office to schedule an appointment or set up a time for Dr. Gibson to host a screening at your child’s school.
