Children's foot concerns
The human foot is a very complicated part of the body and the feet of young children are soft and pliable, abnormal pressures can easily cause the foot to deform. The foot of a child grows rapidly during the first year, reaching almost half their adult foot size. That first year can be very important in the development of the feet.
Foot pain and symptoms in children is not common compared to adults due to the flexibility and resilience of the tissues. Ingrown toenails can occur. Non-specific growing pains in the leg are a common complaint of children, often causing a deep ache like leg pain during the night.
