Flat Feet | Diagnosis


How are flat feet diagnosed?

Your doctor will look at your child's feet to make sure that the pain isn't caused by a problem in the hip or the knee. Your child may need to have X-rays, but your doctor probably can tell you what the problem is just by looking at your child's feet.
