Conditions with symptom: 'deformed foot and ankle bone'
My granddaughter is 7.5. She lives out of town so I never realized the severity of her tiptoeing until the last year or so when we began to see each other more. She constantly tip toes and has now (in my opinion) altered her bones and muscles in her calves, ankle and entire foot. Her toes are spread apart, she stands with her legs seperated and feet pointed out, she complains of ankle pain late in the day. We try to remind her to walk "flat", and she gets very frustrated. Her parents have limited ins coverage, limited cash for copays and they live in a rural area with limited health facilities. What do you suggest?
Id suggest speaking to the school nurse and seeing what she suggests because thats who picked up my daughters walking up on tip toes but i didnt think it was a problem but have since been referred to physiotherapy and she is waiting for casts to be fitted to try and correct the problem.
My son is also 13 months and has intoe which come from a twist in the bone from the knee to the ankle. this was picked up by the pediatrician at his 6 weeks check up. He was referred to a physio who he has been seeing ever since. I was given exercises to stretch his feet and try to correct them. He took his first steps at 10months and is now walking very well albeit he does trip more than the average toddler due to his feet. I saw the physio again yesterday who said she is very happy with him and thinks the exercises have really helped him. She also said sometimes with intoe there can also be a tension in the muscles which is causing in which requires a different type of treatment. Your GP should have referred you to a physio as the normal "wont refer until 18 months for not walking" does not apply when they have intoe. I have been told that it is very common and usually corrects itself by the age of 4, but I believe if we hadn't have been doing the exercises for all these months, he may not be walking so well if at all.
hi im 10 years old and have flat foot my feet are getting better but people make fun of me because the way my feet look and i can't often do indoor P.E also because my little toe's nail but thats nothing to do with my flat foot they also make fun of me because in the sides of my ancles it looks like i have a second ancal and its not just me at school that gets made fun of i have a friend thats got flat foot and he uses insoles like i use to, but we dont know what to do about the making fun ? of and i dont even know if some of the children in my class knows about flat foot .
My son is 10 but extremely tall for his age. He also wears a size 9 adult shoe. His left foot is badly banana shaped which impedes his running and football playing. Podiatry have said there is nothing they can do about it because he is very double jointed meaning his ligaments are too flexible. It's not improving and I'm worried his foot will remain as bad into adulthood. Is there anything that can help to straighten his foot ? He already has insteps but this is only to help with his posture.
my child has swollen fingers at the bottom of the nail bed. She also has extra bone or lumps under her knuckles. what could this be?

You have to be extremely careful in the first 12mths or so following a scoliosis operation whilst the metalwork and bone graft start to 'fuse'. However, once the fusion has solidified properly you can gradually return to a normal life and everyday activities, then over time increase these to whatever activity you are interested in. I had a metal rod inserted and spinal fusion as corrective treatment for scoliosis at 17 (I'm now 39!), but 2yrs after my surgery I was going to theme parks, skiing, climbing, windsurfing, to name just afew. Yes, if an accident did happen, like a car crash for example, we would be worse off than most people and take longer to 'rebuild' again, but...that's life and I don't let it stop me!
