General Discussion

Children can have pain in their feet and legs and never complain about it. Common areas of pain in the growing child are the balls of the feet, the heels and the knees. Aching in the legs (Restless legs) is also common and frequently called growing pains. What should be remembered is that growing does not normally hurt. Pain is a sign that something abnormal happening and should be regarded as a warning sign.

In the infant, pre walker and early walker signs that something abnormal is occurring include excessively bowed legs, curved feet, in-toeing or out-toeing, excessive tripping or stumbling or excessive toe walking. Any newly walking child who prefers to be carried or held instead of exploring their new world maybe communicating discomfort with standing or walking. Hip and back pain in children is not common and should be evaluated by your doctor early.
