At Happy Feet Podiatry we believe prevention is better than cure. We encourage parents to have their child’s feet assessed even if there are no problems evident. Our qualified Podiatrists perform Children’s Foot Health checks to identify any unnoticed problems, to identify any potential future problems, assess that the developmental milestones are being met, and assess your child’s footwear.
We strongly recommend a footwear check and assessment prior to starting school. Some conditions are even evident prior to your child walking. Early detection of certain conditions are imperative for a good outcome.
Throughout growth and development many children will have issues arising from the lower limb. Conditions commonly seen throughout childhood include
• difficulty with coordination
• balance and tripping
• heel pain
• shin pain
• knee pain
• curly toes
• ingrown nails
If you’re concerned your child may be suffering from any of these we can help.
The sooner childhood complaints or developmental problems are diagnosed the more successful the outcome usually is.
We can also check school shoes and joggers to ensure your child is in the right shoe for their feet.
At Happy Feet Podiatry we offer a Podiatrist made and approved range of school shoes. Have your child professionally fitted for their school shoes by one of our Podiatrists.
