Because foot health begins in childhood, regular checkups — and prompt treatment at the first sign of trouble — can provide a lifetime of pain-free walking. Parents should not wait to see if a child’s foot or walking problem will “correct itself” over time. Unfortunately, children often develop a manner of walking that compensates for a particular problem, and this frequently leads to more severe problems later in life.
At Foot Center of New York, we have specially-trained foot doctors (podiatrists) who have years of experience in recognizing and treating problems seen in children’s feet. When recognized early, such problems can be treated promptly — often with excellent results.
Did you know that certain foot disorders often are early signs of diabetes? Patients with diabetes sometimes suffer from sores that don’t heal, numbness, weakness, burning or coldness, blisters, dry skin, itching and other disorders of the feet. If left untreated, these patients are at risk of infection and other severe foot problems.
The Foot Center provides early detection for the many foot problems that commonly affect the diabetic patient. Our multi-disciplinary team of specialists offers comprehensive evaluation of diabetic conditions, and provides patient education and diagnostic testing.
