chicago pediatric foot doctorsOur Chicago pediatric podiatrists have significant experience treating a variety of foot and ankle conditions that arise while children and teenagers are still growing and physically developing. Whether your child needs help with a one-time injury or an ongoing concern, we can provide expert care while ensuring that your child feels comfortable and relaxed throughout the treatment process. Read further to learn more about some common ways that we frequently help our pediatric foot and ankle patients.

Custom Orthotics

chicago foot doctor custom orthotics for kids

Orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts prescribed by your Chicago area podiatrist at Weil Foot and Ankle Institute. For children and teenagers, custom orthotics can help to restore correct foot and ankle posture during the critical years of physical development. Custom orthotics are needed for pediatric patients early in their development for correcting abnormal flat feet and intoeing problems. The use of the orthotics will prevent complications in the future.

You can read more about custom orthotics from Weil Foot & Ankle Care, including information about orthotics and health insurance, by clicking here.

Ingrown Toenails

When the toenail cuts into the surrounding skin, your child may experience mild discomfort or pain depending on the severity of the condition. If an ingrown toenail is not treated properly, it can eventually lead to infection and accompanying symptoms such as redness, swelling, and possible pus or drainage.

At Weil Foot & Ankle Care, we can trim and clean your child’s ingrown toenail, and in the case of infection, we can help get your child’s foot health back on track. We can also help you identify possible causes for your child’s ingrown toenail, so you can take steps to prevent a reoccurrence of this uncomfortable condition.

Foot or Ankle Pain

Pain in the feet or ankles can stem from a variety of possible causes that range from genetics to injuries. When you bring your child to Weil Foot & Ankle Care for treatment of pediatric foot pain, ankle pain, or even leg pain, we won’t just treat the symptoms; we will seek the underlying cause for your child’s pain and work toward a permanent solution whenever possible.

Some common types of pain we treat in our pediatric patients include heel pain in children, shin splints, painful sports injuries, and pain caused by an abnormal gait.

Abnormal Gait

If you have concerns about your child’s gait (the way your child walks), then a consultation with one of our Chicago, IL, foot and ankle doctors may be in order. Weil Foot & Ankle Care has helped numerous patients with a variety of abnormal gait symptoms, including the following:

  • Flat feet
  • Toe walking, aka walking on tiptoe
  • In-toeing, aka toes turn inward instead of pointing straight
  • Out-toeing, aka toes turn outward instead of pointing straight
  • Lifting leg from the hip instead of the knee when walking
  • Uneven weight bearing, limping, or favoring one leg over the other
  • Frequent trips or falls while walking
  • Pain while walking
