The Importance of Choosing a Pediatric Podiatrist for Children’s Foot and Ankle Problems
It's important to realize that children's and adult feet are not the same and should NOT be treated the same.
There are many foot conditions that children have that adults do not. One example is Sever's disease. Sever's is only found in children but is commonly misdiagnosed as Plantar Fasciitis by podiatrists that only see adults. Podiatrists that rarely or never see children generally do not have the same knowlege of how to identify and treat children's feet conditions. These children will be diagnosed treated as if they were adults and the outcomes can be less than ideal or even damaging. In this episode Dr. Mikkel Jarman discusses the importance of choosing a pediatric podiatrist and how to choose the correct one.
Dr. Mikkel Jarman's practice Pediatric Foot & Ankle only treats kids and specializes in children's foot conditions from the ages of infant through teenage years.
