Children’s Podiatry (Paediatric Podiatrists) 

What is children’s podiatrist? Podiatrists are trained to assess, diagnose and treat medical conditions affecting the lower limbs of both adults and children. It is important in a child’s early development stages that any issues that they are experiencing with their feet should be assessed by a podiatrist as quickly as possible. 

It’s every parent’s desire to see their children grow and develop in a normal and pain-free way. However at different developmental stages, some concerning observations such as children walking on their toes (toe walking), with their feet turned in (in-toeing), with their feet turned out (out-toeing), or ‘fallen arches’ may be noted. Generally, these variations are quite normal, and most children will grow out of these with time. However, some may be early indications or risk factors for future foot complications.

When to See a Podiatrist for your Child

There are many different conditions and issue that children can have on their feet when they are young. It is best to book in with a qualified podiatrist if you are worried about: 

  • Uneven shoe wear
  • Recurring pain in the feet or legs
  • Frequent tripping, falling and instability
  • Constant sitting down
  • Early fatigue
  • Family history of foot complications

To ensure your child develops without feet complications, it is best to seek help if you see any of the above signs. The sooner you see a podiatrist for an assessment and diagnosis, the better the outcome and treatment will be. 

Growing Pains

Children may experience growing pains in their legs and feet when they are developing. However, the term “growing pains” is frequently thrown around to cover all manner of issues in children’s legs. However, seeing a podiatrist will help assess whether your child is experiencing growing pains or an underlying medical condition.
