The team at myPod Podiatry has a combined experience of over 20 years in Paediatric Podiatry, treating a wide array of conditions in children. When children are born, their feet have a lot of growing to do as they progress through childhood into the world of adults. Your child’s feet are the vehicles they will use to explore, play, compete, and move around. Maintaining healthy feet in children is essential to help them have a happy and fulfilling childhood.
While it’s common for children to experience pain in their feet, it is never something to be ignored. Young children displaying reduced activity or complaining of pain in their legs or feet should be assessed immediately. As an infant’s feet grows from the soft malleable mix of bone and cartilage they are born with, into the hard bones of adulthood, small issues left unaddressed can become big problems with lifelong consequences.
