Children’s Foot and Ankle Injuries

The foot and ankle are complex structures, so children’s foot and ankle injuries should be managed by a specialist.  Children can suffer from injuries or fractures that can cross the growth plates (epiphysis) and cause permanent damage if not treated correctly. Also, children may also not complain of pain which may indicate the severity of the injury.  It’s important to have a foot and ankle specialist with knowledge in pediatric injuries evaluate your child.
