Paediatric Podiatry

At Practical Podiatry, we're deeply passionate about children's podiatry. As kids grow and develop, they may encounter various foot issues that impact lower leg mechanics. Parents frequently worry about their child's gait or general foot health. Remember, no child is too young to benefit from a podiatrist's care.

Symptoms

Challenges related to lower leg mechanics frequently arise in children. While some issues may resolve on their own over time, early intervention often leads to the best results. Children's podiatry addresses immediate concerns and works to prevent future issues.

It's recommended to consult our podiatrists if you observe any of the following signs in your child:

  • Awkward gait or walking pattern

  • In-Toeing

  • Flat feet

  • Uneven shoe wear

  • Poor posture

  • Instability and frequent tripping

  • Pain in their feet

Treatment

Regardless of age, concerns about children's feet are always addressed. Treatment options for youngsters encompass orthotics, stretching, and strengthening exercises. We specialize in addressing common issues such as wart treatment and removal, foot and joint pains, children's orthotics, and gait analysis to evaluate conditions like flat feet, in-toeing, and toe walking.
