Children’s feet are the corner stone to stability and lower leg mechanics. As children grow, they can be faced with a number of foot problems that affect lower leg mechanics. Many of them are common and will correct themselves with time, whilst others should be treated early for the most effective outcomes.
When should children visit a podiatrist?
If you have any concern regarding your child’s feet or lower legs then you should seek advice from our children’s podiatrists. No issue is too small and our podiatrists can diagnose treat all children’s foot problems including gait issues, sports injuries, lower leg and foot pain, ingrown toenails and warts.
If your child is suffering from any lower leg symptoms, exhibits an awkward gait or walk, has flat feet, uneven shoe wear, poor posture and stability then you should schedule a consultation with one of our children’s podiatrists.
