Children’s Feet

It’s a tough time growing up! From birth through to adulthood, children can experience a myriad of age related and developmental problems to their feet and legs.

‘Its important to identify and manage these problems before they manifest into something more serious’

Some of these problems will be brought about by genetics, growth rate, sporting activities, or footwear. Its important to identify and manage these problems before they manifest into something more serious.

Our Podiatrists are skilled and experienced at looking after your child. We will consider all factors, including school and sporting commitments, before developing our treatment plan. We will get to know your child, so they feel comfortable and confident with the Podiatrist looking after them.
