CHILDREN'S PODIATRY
Kids Running

As children grow, they become more active. Their bodies are developing, and it is not unusual to experience pain in the feet and ankles. Many participate in sports that can also give rise to foot pain and a whole range of foot problems

It can be difficult for parents to know what aches and pains are part of the growing process and what is normal. You should seek professional foot care advice from a qualified podiatrist if you notice your child is:

​• Complaining of persistent pain in his/her legs and feet or experiencing excessive tiredness

• Walking with his/her toes pointing outwards or inwards

• Walking on tiptoes

You should also seek advice if your child suffers from:

• Corns

• Ingrown toenails

• Painful, hard skin
• Verrucae pedis (warts)

• Athletes foot (fungal infection)

Our podiatrist can advise on: 

• Stretching or strengthening exercises

• Demonstrations on taping 

• Footwear advice

• Orthotics
