My son is a very active little boy, but he has been experiencing foot pain that puts a stop to many of the activities that he enjoys. I have taken him to his pediatrician who had not been able to find any cause for his pain. That was when we were referred to a podiatrist. After a few x-rays and a careful examination, she was able to find a small problem that was easily taken care of. If you, or your child is having foot pain, don't ignore it. Instead, go to a podiatrist to find out if it is one of the many problems that can occur in your feet.
