Does your child have a Leg or Foot Injury?
Children are just as likely to develop problems with their feet and legs as adults, however they do need to be treated differently… They are not little adults, we must take into account developmental stages and growth patterns. The age of children we see varies from nine months to seventeen years of age.
Common things we see: growing pains, knee pain, heel pain (severs disease), curly toes, hip developmental issues, heel pain/plantar fasciitis, feet rolling in, tripping when running.
Our podiatrist Stephanie Barlin is currently undertaking her accreditation to be a specialist paediatric podiatrist, so your kids are in good hands.
