Children’s Feet

Children’s feet are frequently changing shape and size throughout their developmental years. Podiatrists play an important role in assessing, diagnosing, treating and monitoring children’s feet. Our Podiatrists use a wide range of foot orthotics for young people, both prefabricated, semi-custom and customised orthotics.

We have listed below a number of signs and symptoms that parents can use to determine whether their children require an appointment to be assessed by one of our Podiatrists.

We recommend that your child be seen by our Podiatrists if they:

  • Regularly fall or trip over
  • Complain of painful feet, legs or knees
  • Have flat feet
  • Have painful heels
  • Don’t want to participate in activities due to tired feet or legs

Common Paediatric foot conditions, that we treat:

  • Flat Feet
  • In-toeing (Pigeon Toed)
  • Heel Pain (Sever’s Disease)
  • Ingrown Toenails
  • Warts
  • Assessment of children’s gait pattern
