Paediatric (Children’s) Podiatry

Introduction to Paediatric (Children’s) Podiatry

Paediatric Podiatry provides specialised services for children aged 2 and above to young adults. A child’s foot should allow them to run, jump and play without the limitation of pain. The growing lower limb goes through a series of developmental changes and each milestone can result in a wide range of conditions and issues. It is important to have your child assessed if you have any concerns as early intervention may prevent long-term problems. At The Foot Practice, we can use gait analyses, experience and specific testing techniques to diagnose and provide evidence-based management plans tailored to your child’s needs. In some cases close monitoring is all that is needed, whilst others need intervention and the use of orthotics. For example, advice can range from:

  • Advice on children’s footwear
  • Custom orthotics to improve foot function
  • Stretching and strengthening exercises to assist with lower limb health
