Tired Aching Legs and Clumsiness
Tired Aching legs and Clumsiness – children may complain about tired aching legs and asked to be carried not wanting to walk too far. This may be a result of over working muscles that fatigue quicker than normal. Muscles in the foot and leg have to work hard if the feet are flat or rolling in too much.
Clumsiness can also be a symptom of fatiguing muscles and joints that are out of alignment. A foot and gait assessment of your child will allow your podiatrist to assess their mechanics and advise if orthotic therapy may help.
