What Is Pediatric Flatfoot?

washington heights queens ny foot doctor for pediatric flatfootFlatfloot occurs when the arch of the patient’s foot collapses either partially or completely. When this occurs in children, it’s referred to as pediatric flatfoot.

Symptoms Of Pediatric Flatfoot

Flatfoot can be asymptomatic, meaning the patient exhibits no symptoms. In symptomatic flatfoot, the patient may experience:

  • Pain that limits their activity
  • Leg cramps
  • Tenderness in the leg, foot, or knee
  • Heels that roll outward
  • A change in their gait (how they walk)
  • Difficulty finding shoes that fit well and/or are comfortable

How To Diagnose Pediatric Flatfoot

The easiest way to diagnose pediatric flatfoot is to have the child sit, stand up, and walk in bare feet; if the child’s arch either flattens or disappears completely, that is an indication of flatfoot. The doctor may also examine the range of motion in the foot as well as the knee and hip to identify or rule out contributing conditions. More severe deformities may require an x-ray.

Non-Surgical Treatment For Pediatric Flatfoot

Asymptomatic pediatric flatfoot doesn’t require treatment. Symptomatic flatfoot can be treated using:

  • Custom orthotics
  • Modified activity levels
  • Physical therapy
  • Special shoes
  • Anti-inflammatories
