9 year old boy pronantes and pigeon toes right foot

SHARE

My 9 year old boy pronates his right foot and walks pigeon-toed on it also.
I don’t know if it has gotten worse or if we are just now noticing it.
The inside edge of his shoe just below the ankle is worn, although he clearly doesn’t pronate enough to walk on his ankles.
Also, the part of the shoe the covers the upper inside edge of his big toe is the first to wear through.
The bottom inside edge of his shoe is clearly worn.
He sometimes complains that his right knee hurts after walking moderately long distances.
Should we be concerned?
Thanks for your input.

  1. Yes you should be concerned if he has pain. A podiatrist can do a biomechanical examination and determine what would be in your son’s best interest.Good luck.Vivian A DPM
