Our Podiatrists Deliver Top-Rated Care

If you’re searching for pediatric foot care in Highland Park, IL, you’re in the right place! Our Chicago pediatric podiatrists have extensive experience in treating a variety of foot and ankle conditions that arise while children and teenagers are still growing and developing. Whether your child needs help with a one-time injury or has an ongoing foot or ankle issue, 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-Made Pediatric Orthotics

Orthotics are custom-made shoe inserts prescribed by our podiatrist. They are custom molded to each individual’s foot. For children and teenagers, custom orthotics can help to restore the correct foot and ankle posture during the critical years of physical development. Custom orthotics are needed for pediatric patients early in their development to correct abnormal flat feet and in-toeing problems. The use of orthotics can prevent foot and ankle 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.

About Ingrown Toenails

An ingrown toenail is a condition where the toenail cuts into the surrounding skin. Your child may experience mild discomfort or pain depending on the severity of their 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, our compassionate podiatrists can clean and trim your child’s ingrown toenail, and in the case of an infected toenail, 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 recurrence of this uncomfortable condition.

Foot & Ankle Pain

Pain in the feet or ankles can be caused by various conditions that range from genetics to different types of foot 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 find the underlying cause of your child’s pain and work toward a permanent solution whenever possible.

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

What Is Abnormal Gait?

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

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