How We Can Help
Meet Our Hinchinbrook Podiatrists
We all know children's feet are growing all the time and need to be measured regularly, but did you know that our feet can change during adulthood too? Although changes may be small, it can make a big difference to the fit of your shoes.
Wearing the wrong size shoes can cause heel pain, blistering and leave you feeling sore even after short periods of time on your feet.
Podiatrists are encouraging people with Type 1 and 2 Diabetes to book an annual checkup to help prevent diabetes-related foot amputations.
Children’s feet and legs develop rapidly, and there are a surprising number of common foot problems that can be difficult for parents to identify.
What are the biggest problems with little feet?
Children can experience everything from delayed walking, tippy-toeing, flat feet and bowed legs, pigeon toeing and clumsiness, ingrown toenails, plantar warts and more. It is important for parents to understand how to properly care for growing feet. This includes who to turn to for professional advice and how to prevent these conditions from developing into life-limiting issues.
