Like adults, children can develop feet deformities and conditions. While some of these conditions will resolve over time, others may continue into adulthood. Children may think that their condition is normal or may not speak up when experiencing discomfort, so parents need to be proactive and vigilant about their child’s health.
At East Coast Podiatry, our podiatrists perform full paediatric biomechanical assessments for children with musculoskeletal complaints. This allows us to build a comprehensive diagnosis of present and future problems for paediatric patients. We also work closely with other healthcare professionals such as orthopaedic surgeons, allowing us to make prompt referrals for any children who need more serious intervention.
