Tired legs and cramping
Tired legs are often an indication that the muscles of the leg are being overused often due to poor foot alignment and mechanics. Children with poor foot and leg alignment often complain of tired legs and want to be carried after a certain distance of walking.
A full biomechanical assessment and gait analysis allows your podiatrist to determine if leg muscle overuse is linked to the foot mechanics and alignment and the best treatment plan from there. Muscle cramps can be caused by a number of issues including muscles over use, mineral deficiency or poor blood circulation to the muscle.
If muscle cramps occur during walking it may indicate a lack of blood supply and you should see your GP as soon as you can.
