Children’s foot screening
You can bring your children in any time of the year to have their feet assessed but it’s a good idea to get checked before your purchase new shoes.
Taking your child to see a podiatrist is a great opportunity to get your child’s feet and general posture looked at. Good foot and lower limb health is really important for children’s growth and development.
Seeing a podiatrist from a young age can help to prevent foot and lower limb problems later in life with footwear advice, stretching and strengthening exercises. A podiatrist can also identify when further intervention is needed for example orthotics.
Why should you come and see a podiatrist?
Maybe you have noticed one or more of the following:
- Your child walks with their feet turned in or out
- Your child walks on their toes
- Your child gets sore feet or legs
- Your child has flat feet
- Your child often wakes during the night with cramping
- Your child fatigues easily
Please contact one of our reception staff to make an appointment for your child, we look forward to seeing you!
