Ankle pain in a 10 year old boy
My grandson has a lot of pain in his ankles, he is involved in sports.  He is also very flat footed.  He has been to a foot specialist who gave him inserts for his shoes.  It helped for a few days, but the inserts seemed to flatten out.  Any suggestions?


This discussion is related to ankle pain,purple,and swollen for 3months.

Hello!

You would need to change inserts with time and growth of your grandson regularly. He should also wear ergonomically proper shoes.

He can take occasional pain killers for pain and use ice packs regularly to decrease inflammation.

If symptoms continue follow up with a podiatrist.

Take care!

I would also consider looking into whether or physical therapy may help.

Good Luck,

About how long should the inserts last?  What kind of inserts did you have in mind?   Also, when you say ergonomically proper shoes, what would this include?
