Fall means more than "Back to School" for kids. It's also a time when sports teams get back into action. Many young people are in several sports each season. If your children are involved in sports activities - especially those that are hard on their feet such as soccer, basketball, track and football - we here at Affiliated Podiatrists suggest that you be on the lookout for "Overuse Injuries."
Damage can occur to bones, tendons and ligaments in kids' feet and ankles that aren't fully developed. Pain is never normal in a child's foot or ankle! Any pain that lasts a few days should be evaluated in our office.
