Does your child regularly complain of pain in their legs or feet? Are they limping during or after sport?
Children’s legs and feet are not just smaller versions of our own. As they grow and develop, there are key differences which mean children can develop unique pains and injuries.
We know that when your child complains of pain this can be worrying. With 20 years’ experience in paediatric podiatry, we are perfectly placed to diagnose the cause of your child’s pain and provide you with answers. We’ll set aside the time to listen, examine, diagnose, and treat your child in a caring, professional, and friendly environment.
Even in the absence of pain, sometimes things just don’t look right – flat feet, knock knees, bow legs, bunions, and so on. The feet and legs of a growing child are constantly changing. We will educate you and your child on what is normal and what is not, and, if treatment is required, we will provide you with options to suit your child and family’s unique needs.
