Unlike adults, children's immature feet are soft and pliable and therefore more susceptible to deformity caused by abnormal pressures.
Children are highly active and should not be constrained by pain.
Your child should be seen by a podiatrist if suffering:
pain (foot, ankle, knee, hip)
abnormally shaped feet
if your child complains of of tired feet or legs
or is struggling to keep up with other children.
