What Are Custom Orthotics?

chicago foot doctor custom orthotics for kids

Our podiatrists may prescribe orthotics, which are custom-made shoe inserts. For children and teenagers, custom orthotics can help restore proper 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 and preventing complications in the future.

Treating Ingrown Toenails

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

Our pediatric podiatrists at Weil Foot & Ankle Institute can trim and clean your child’s ingrown toenail, and in the case of infection, can help get your child’s foot health back on track. We can also help you identify possible causes, so you can take steps to prevent it from reoccurring in the future

Help for Foot or Ankle Pain

Feet or ankle pain can arise from a variety of possible causes ranging from genetics to injuries. When you bring your child to Weil Foot & Ankle Institute for treatment of pediatric foot pain, ankle pain, or even leg pain, we won’t just treat the symptoms. Whenever possible, we will seek the underlying cause for your child’s pain and work toward a permanent solution.

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

Treatment for an Abnormal Gait

If you have concerns about the way your child walks (their gait), we recommend a consultation with one of our pediatric podiatrists. Weil Foot & Ankle Institute 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
