Children’s feet are not small adult’s feet. Conditions that can cause problems in adults can be perfectly normal in children.
Many of the problems that do occur in children’s feet are associated with growth, overuse, weight gain or changes in posture. Podiatrist’s at Orthotika will carry out a full paediatric assessment.
Dependent on the outcome the podiatrist will either:
- Provide reassurance that everything is normal;
- Provide advice on activity, stretches, footwear;
- Provision of orthotics/insoles; and/or
- Recommend referral to a specialist consultant.
