The Podiatry Team at peninsula Foot Clinic are experienced with Kids and their feet.

Many common foot problems in kids can be due to variations in walking patterns and arch development as kids are growing. Foot pain in kids can be challenging depending on the age of the child they may report pain or just be less inclined to engage in activity if they experience discomfort in the feet or legs.

An assessment of your child by our Podiatrists will involve a thorough history, physical examination and a gait assessment to determine if there are factors contributing to pain in the feet or legs.

Foot problems in children are usually treated easily with advice, simple intervention or monitoring of their developmental milestones. Referral to specialist services or further investigations will be coordinated if required.

  • Flat feet
