Will my kids outgrow their foot pain?

No child should have foot pain! Pain is the body's way of letting you know that something is wrong. If a child consistently experiences pain during regular daily activity, it is important that you bring them to our office to find out why. I fact, a child experiencing foot pain, ankle pain, knee pain, hip pain, or back pain can all originate in the feet.

This is not to say that kids won't have occasional pain. All children will experience "growing pains" or cramping at one time or another. This will typically last one or two days at a time, however. If this is the case, they do not have to go to the doctor. More active kids playing sports in Houston can also suffer injuries to the foot and ankle. These can include sprains and fractures. You should always have kids examined after significant sports injuries to ensure no damage has been done to the growth plates.
