Childhood is an important time for the development of feet and problems left untreated can cause pain, deformities, walking abnormalities and prevent children from participating at school and sport, especially when they are still growing.
A foot health check is a good idea if parents are noticing that their children are struggling with flat feet, feet that roll in, poor balance, tripping or poor coordination, foot pain, toe walking, pigeon toes, knock knees or bow legs, growing pains in legs and painful heels.
Children do not often complain about foot pain or problems they are having walking or running, which is why it is so important to get a foot health check and identify any problems early on.
When treated during childhood, problems with feet and legs can help prevent long term problems with back, hip, knee and foot pain in adulthood.
