Podopediatrics

A podiatry consult can be useful at a young age.

The procedure

If your child walks with feet pointing inwards, if he complains of pain or muscular fatigue, if he has flat or high arched feet, book an appointment with a podiatrist to have a complete biomechanical exam and gait analysis. During the visit, the podiatrist will answer all of your questions and discuss about treatments, strenghtening and stretching exercises and footwear advice.

Condition :

Sprain and fracture

Foot and ankle sprains can happen while practicing a sport, but also while walking on an uneven surface for example. A chronic ankle instability can lead to repeated injuries if left untreated. Your podiatrist will help you treat the problem to get back on your feet as soon as possible. Also, advice on proper footwear, strenghtening and proprioception exercises will be the key to a full recovery. Finally, if a fracture is suspected, your podiatrist will prescribe X-rays and analyse them.

Sprain and fracture

Condition :

Plantar fasciitis

The plantar fascia, a structure extending from the heel to the toes, acts as a support to the arch of the foot. It is extremely sollicitated during the walk, therefore often injured. Many factors can lead to a plantar fasciitis like inadequate footwear or a biomecanical malalignment of your feet. Your podiatrist can identify the cause and propose different treatments such as therapeutic bandages, ultrasound therapy, anti-inflammatory medication, a cortisone injection and foot orthotics.

•Pain in the heel area or in the arch ;
•Worst when getting up in the morning or after a long sitting time.

Plantar fasciitis

Condition :

Plantar wart

A plantar wart is a viral infection caused by human papilloma virus (HPV). Left untreated, plantar warts can multiply, grow in size and become painful when walking. The podiatrist can treat your warts and help you avoid recurrence of this problem.

•Growth under the foot or on the toes with or without callus on top ;
•Black pinpoints (small clotted blood vessels) ;
•Possibly painful when walking.

Condition :

Corns and calluses

Corns are located on pressure points under the feet or between the toes. Painful or not, if left untreated, they can become larger , thicker and deeper. Calluses are areas of your feet where the skin gets thicker because of a repeated friction or plantar pression. The podiatrist will debride corns and calluses with sterile instruments and give you some advice on different creams to apply at home.

Corns and calluses

Condition :

Mycotic nails

Onychomycosis is a frequently seen fungal infection. When in doubt, the podiatrist will take a specimen of your toenail to confirm his diagnosis. There are topical and oral medications to treat onychomycosis.

•Yellow-brown or white discoloration ;
•Presence of debris under the toenail ;
•Thickened and crumbly toenails.

Mycotic nails

Condition :

Psoriasis/eczema

Skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis can also affect your feet. It can cause pain, itching, burning sensations and can also change the nail appearance. Your podiatrist can evaluate the problem and prescribe  the appropriate treatment for your condition.
