Is your child suffering from a foot injury?
Children’s feet are different to that of adults. When they are young, their bones are still very soft and are therefore more easily affected by external factors that may result in abnormalities. Some signs of poor foot posture may include tripping, aching feet, aching legs, growing pains & heel pain. Children’s feet need to be especially looked after as they are not yet fully formed.
Children’s podiatry is a passion of ours, and we offer expert consultations on assessing your children’s feet problems.
At the Foot and Ankle Clinic our highly qualified team of Podiatrists are all members of the Australian Podiatry Association and offer a combined 50 years’ experience. They are trained to diagnose and effectively treat children’s podiatric conditions via a range of treatments.
