EARLY DETECTION AND PREVENTION IS KEY
With your child’s foot containing more than ¼ of the bones in their body it is essential that from the time they start to walk they are well supported.
Children’s feet are different from adults as the developing foot contains growth plates and soft cartilage which don’t completely form until 13 to 16 years of age.
It is within this time that the feet experience their most significant change and it is extremely important to monitor and maintain the healthy growth of your child’s feet.
Our Podiatrists have the experience and technology to thoroughly examine your child’s feet and determine if any treatment options are required. In most cases it is as simple as wearing Orthotics in their shoes, doing a few stretches or just wearing a different type of shoe.
