What can cause feet pain in children?

The Pain of Flat Feet

Flat feet, also called fallen arches, is a medical condition in which the arch of the foot collapses, allowing the entire sole of the foot to make contact with the ground. One or both feet may lack arches, which may cause an imbalance during development. Since footwear is constructed for normally arched feet, flat footed patients may experience pain from walking or wearing shoes. Flat feet pain causes standing and moving to be more difficult to perform on a regular basis. Some problems include:

  • Tired feet, which will become painful after walking or standing for long periods of time
  • Inability to exercise or play sports due to pain
  • Pain and swelling in the heel or arch of foot
Flat feet is usually diagnosed in children, but may improve before reaching the adult stage. If you think you may be experiencing pain from flat feet, and have not been diagnosed, it is important to consult a doctor immediately for help.
