Children's Foot Health

Children are not mini adults, they are constantly developing and growing at different rates and have different needs to adult bodies.

Signs that an assessment by a Podiatrist is required may include:

  • Feet turned out excessively or inwardly

  • Awkward walking style or consistent tripping or clumsiness

  • Painful, tired legs at the end of the day or pains at night (also known as ‘growing pains’)

  • Excessive wear patterns on shoes

  • Corns, blisters, callus, warts, new freckles, itchy spots

  • Family history of foot and lower limb problem

  • Toe walking

Remember, pain is not normal.
