If your child complains of any foot or ankle pain and you can’t see an obvious cause (for example, a blister caused by ill-fitting shoes) then it is well worth booking an appointment with a podiatrist, such as the specialists at Podogo, without delay. If your child does need a professional treatment or foot care programme, then it will tend to be handled most easily in the early stages of the problem occurring. If left untreated, the problem can become worse.
