childrens foot care near meAt Beaver Valley Foot Clinic, we think kids are more than just small people. “As a mother of 5, I realize that kids come in with their own concerns that have nothing to do with that contagious wart on their foot or the infected ingrown toenail they have managed to hide from you. “

Certain foot problems are only seen at certain ages and you want a foot doctor that recognizes and understands this. This is especially true in child athletes. And treating children’s feet effectively also requires listening to them and gaining their trust. It takes time to form that bond, Dr Christina is willing to take that time with your child. She has also invested in some very specialized kid friendly equipment [like painless lasers to kill plantars warts] that also carry over to the bigger babies in your life.



Childrens Foot Problems and Treatments

Plantars wart

Lasers used to treat warts is relatively new in Pittsburgh. Laser wart treatment was unheard of even several years ago. The laser we use is gentle enough for treating kids warts, but powerful enough to make mom very happy. As of Sept 2016, we are the first to have the new “double tip” laser for treating warts which can penetrate deep into the wart ,cutting treatment time in half. Plantar wart laser treatment is relatively painless and requires no anesthesia and does not cause a burn.Your child can be back at dance class or soccer immediately afterward.

Plantar Fasciitis and Achilles Tendonitis

These painful foot conditions in children used to be rare; but now with year round sports and being on 3-4 soccer teams at once, and football conditioning started in July [that’s all my kids), I see it a lot more often. First we determine whether or not there is any tear or rupture of the plantar fascia. Then we determine the proper accommodative footwear and inserts and appropriate level of activity based on your child’s foot injury. We end with prevention training going forward.

Growing Pains

Growing pains in children 8-13 are real. Sever’s Disease, calcaneal apophysitis and osteochondroses are the medical terms for this condition. This is seen most often when your child has had a growth spurt or started spring or fall training. If his or her heel hurts after sports, or he/she wakes up in the middle of the night with heel pain or cramps, bring them in for an evaluation. Children’s arch supports are available in kids sizes and at a reasonable affordable cost 

Smelly Feet

If your childs shoes can clear a room, we can help. We have very specific products, which are child safe and natural to control the many aspects of thi

s problem.
