How to Treat Foot Pain in Children
Many children can experience foot pain as they continue to grow, for a variety of reasons. If your child complains of foot pain, he may be experiencing growing pains in his heel bone, there may be medical issues with his feet, such as flat footedness, or he may be wearing improper shoes. Ankle and foot pain is also common in children at around age seven to eight due to the high amount of activity and running around they do every day. Before you can treat your child’s foot pain, it’s important to identify the root cause of his pain and get a diagnosis from a medical professional.
