Children’s feet differ enormously from adults feet as the bones in children’s feet haven’t fully hardened, making them more susceptible to external forces and potential injury. Many of the conditions Podiatrists treat in adults could have been avoided if treated at a young age.
Children’s feet should never be painful, and there is no such thing as “growing pains”, any persistent pain that results in loss of function, limping, or reluctance to pursue sporting activities should be assessed by a Podiatrist.
The Podiatrists at Foot Focus are very experienced in assessing and treating children’s feet utilising the latest technology in gait analysis, exercise therapy, footwear advice and orthotic therapy. Some of the many conditions we treat include: Flat feet, in toeing, severs disease, Osgood schlatter’s disease, clumsy gait, knock knees, toe walking and toe deformities.
