CHILDREN'S FOOT ASSESSMENTS

At The Foot Clinic we have a special interest in the growth and development of children’s feet. Children and toddlers may suffer from a range of foot problems which need to be assessed early.
 
It is important to ensure your child’s feet are developing and have any problems or queries attended to by a Podiatrist. A full assessment is performed to identify the source of the problem

A full Paediatric foot assessment involves:

• Checking your child's range of motion in the hips, knees, ankles and feet
• Observing your child walking analysing their foot posture and lower limb mechanics
• Checking for discrepancies in muscle strength in the lower legs
• Assessing footwear
• On some occasions imaging such as Xray, ultrasound or MRI may be utilised if needed
• Putting in place a comprehensive treatment plan
