Children’s feet are different to adults as they are not yet fully formed. Every child is different and their feet will develop and grow at different rates. During this growth period a number of issues can begin to develop. 

Flat Feet

Flat feet are not always problematic, but if you are concerned with your child foot posture an assessment is definately worthwhile.

Intoeing (pidgeon toes)

Intoeing is when the feet turn inwards when walking. It is common in childhood and is usually outgrown. With intoeing, children might be prone to tripping, or look awkward when walking or running

Knee Pain

Knee pain can be  associated with foot position. A Podiatric assessment to check foot and knee alignment is always a good option when trying to work out the cause.

Ankle Pain

Ankle pain may be due to ligament weakness and foot position. A biomechanical assessment will assess ankle strength, range of motion and foot position.
