Children’s Foot Problems

Contrary to popular belief, children are not little adults. For this reason, they need to be assessed and monitored on a case by case basis. Many childhood conditions are hereditary and if diagnosed early can prevent them from becoming an issue in later life. Any painful complaints in children should be promptly and thoroughly assessed by a professional.

Conditions requiring professional assessment and monitoring:

  • Toe walking
  • Heel pain, and any sort of joint pain
  • In toeing and out toeing gait
  • Flat feet
  • Growing pain
  • Ingrowing nails
  • Warts
