Does my child need to see a podiatrist?
We recommend an assessment if your child is experiencing any of the following symptoms:
- Foot or ankle pain
- Knee pain
- Hip or lower back pain that may be related to their foot posture
- Difficulty keeping up with other children
- If you notice that your child’s feet are holding them back in any way!
Our clinics cater to a range of foot concerns in children, including:
- Sever’s disease (kids’ heel pain)
- Foot and ankle pain
- Ingrown toenails (both conservative and surgical management)
- Plantar warts
- Orthotic therapy
- Toe walking
- General Podiatry assessments to ensure healthy development.
For most patients and conditions, we can then confirm the diagnosis while you are in the chair- same day!
