P David Applegate, DPM believes that bunions should not be ignored. As the deformity worsens and gets larger later on, it can become more difficult to correct. If you have been living with a bunion, consider scheduling an appointment at Texas Foot and Ankle Specialists.
Babies are born with flat feet and it is rare that they encounter problems. Some notable issues can arise however if the young child cannot engage in activities such as walking and running. If you notice your child is awkwardly engaging in these activities or if they start to complain of pain in their feet, legs, or knees, it is important to have the child examined by a podiatrist like Dr. Applegate.
