“Don’t worry – they’ll grow out of it,” is a common response to parents’ concerns about the development of their children’s feet or legs.
In some cases this can be true, however as children grow up their feet and legs undergo various stages of development. Your podiatrist will be able to advise you whether your children’s development falls within acceptable limits for their age, or if treatment may be required.
Don’t dismiss your child’s consistent complaints of aches as ‘just growing pans’. The reason for persistent aches and cramps can sometimes be due to poor foot or leg posture.
