With children, their bones don’t fuse together until puberty. There are some foot and leg conditions that may then present with pain or kids not keeping up with their friends. Gait analysis, correct shoe fittings and ongoing monitoring are some of the ways that podiatric care can positively change the lives of kids. It’s a good idea to have your kids regularly checked by a podiatrist to ensure healthy foot development. Podiatrists are THE experts in foot health. They help children, athletes, chronically ill and older Australians enjoy better lives with healthy feet.
