Quick reference medical handouts used by Pediatric offices


I was alarmed to notice that my 10-year-old son's feet and ankles look very strange. He bears his weight on the insides of his feet and his ankles turn in toward each other dramatically. When he stands he literally has no arches. Can you picture this? Can you advise what I should do? I should also note that his ankles look very bony, and just unnatural. Thank you
    
Yes we can picture this! Orthopaedic surgeons and pediatricians see dozens of feet like this every year and almost none of them need treatment. If they are painful, stiff or severely flat then they might need some form of treatment, including the possibility of surgery. Get him to stand up on tip toe and look at his feet from behind. If he forms good arches on tip toes and they are not causing calluses or pain then no treatment is needed. If any other of the above conditions applies then he needs to be seen by an orthopaedist who specializes in caring for children.

For more information on flat feet, see our article Common Orthopaedic Problems in Children.
