Toe problems, Pandis Vasilios, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Corfu

Προβλήματα με δάκτυλα ποδιών, Πανδής Βασίλειος, Χειρούργος Ορθοπεδικός Τραυματιολόγος, Κέρκυρα

Το παιδί σας έχει παραπεμφθεί σε μας με πόνο και ευαισθησία στην έσω περιοχή του ταρσού στο πόδι. Πάσχει από οστεοχονδρίτιδα του σκαφοειδούς (Kohler’s). Το πρόβλημα εμφανίζεται σε ηλικίες 3-10 ετών και είναι πιο συχνό στα αγόρια.

Flat feet, Pandis Vasilios, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Corfu

WHAT ARE FLAT FEET?

A foot is described as flat if the arch on the inner border of the foot is not as high as normal. This may also give the appearance that the ankle bone on the inside is more prominent or that the whole foot seems tilted out the way.

Ιntoeing, Pandis Vasilios, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Corfu

Your child walks with his/her feet turned in or intoed. Some call this hen toeing or pigeon toeing. The problem appears to be in the feet but careful examination reveals that the whole leg, not just the foot, is turned in the way. The in-turning is at the hip. This may also give the appearance of knock- knees.

Many intoers seem rather clumsy and fall a lot. Intoers commonly have loose joints or "ligamentous laxity". It is easy to show by examination that the joints are loose and that the hips can be turned in more than out.

Heel pain, Pandis Vasilios, Consultant Orthopaedic Surgeon, Corfu

Your child has been referred to the clinic because of his/her heel pain. Examination and X-rays have shown no serious disease. The pain is due to a condition called "Sever's Disease". This leaflet tells you about Sever's Disease.

WHAT IS SEVER'S DISEASE?

It is not really a disease at all. It is a type of growing pain, which protects your child's growing skeleton from damage caused by over activity at a time when rapid growth of the heel bone makes the bone weaker than normal.
