Overview of Pediatric Conditions
Pediatric foot and ankle conditions encompass a variety of disorders that can affect children from infancy through adolescence. These conditions, ranging from congenital deformities to growth-related issues, can impact a child's ability to walk, play, and engage in activities comfortably.

Causes and Types
Common pediatric conditions include flat feet, in-toeing, out-toeing, clubfoot, and Sever's disease. These can arise from genetic factors, developmental issues, or injuries. The impact of these conditions varies, with some requiring prompt intervention and others resolving as the child grows.
