Children’s Podiatry

At TFC Podiatry, we understand that kids’ feet are very complex. Many Children develop some form of foot pain or concern during their developmental years.

Your child depends on having pain free, healthy feet, to ensure they stay active and don’t refrain from day-to-day activities and exercise. It is best to have your child’s feet checked to ensure small problems don’t turn into big ones. Our team of friendly podiatrists take a gentle approach, as we want to ensure both parents and children feel comfortable and cared for.
