How to know if you need to take your child to a podiatrist?
If your child experiences any of the following, My FootDr can help:
It goes without saying that children are always growing and changing! It’s exciting to watch them grow and become more confident on their feet. This often quite rapid growth, however, can result in children experiencing vague symptoms that can be difficult for parents to identify - or know what to do to help.
What are the biggest problems with little feet?
Children can experience everything from delayed walking, tip-toeing, flat feet, knock knees, pigeon toeing ingrown toenails, plantar warts and more. In most cases, these problems are transient or, where symptoms persist, respond well to treatment. Podiatrists are highly skilled at assessing children’s feet and lower limb biomechanics and also work alongside other health professionals, such as physiotherapists, to ensure your child is getting the best possible care.
