As podiatrists, we have undertaken study in paediatric conditions that can affect the feet. These conditions can be something very easily treated and managed, such as heel pain (Sever’s disease,) to the more complex that may require ongoing referral to a specialist.
Your podiatrists at The Victorian Podiatry Group can undertake specific testing and screening of your child. Through these assessments we can provide information to make sure that their development of the lower limb is within normal guidelines.
What you should look out for from your child:
- Limping before or after exercise
- Complaining of sore hips, knees or feet
- Not wanting to engage in fun exercise
- Abnormal shoe wear
We also treat common paediatric skin and nail conditions such as plantar warts and ingrown toenails.
