Kid’s NO GAP Foot Check

My FootDr Kid's Foot Health

My FootDr Kid's Foot HealthGrowing feet shouldn’t mean growing pains.

As Australia’s leading podiatry group, we know that children’s feet need specialised attention from an early age to ensure less problems later in life.

Some of the problems we commonly see in children include flat feet, in-toeing, heel pain (Sever’s Disease), knee and leg pain (Osgood Schlatter’s Disease), knock knees, toe walking and toe deformities.

That’s why we’ve introduced Kid’s NO GAP* foot checks at all My FootDr podiatry clinics.

At your child’s appointment, the podiatrist will assess their foot health including:

  • Any aches and pains
  • Foot type
  • Knee position
  • Leg alignment
  • Shoe fit
  • Skin and nail health

If a biomechanical foot or leg problem is detected, the podiatrist may recommend further examination including a video gait analysis or 3D foot scan. If required, the podiatrist may prescribe custom-foot orthotics, which are designed to support the natural shape of the foot, align the foot and ankle.

Children’s custom-made foot orthotics can help with a number of conditions including flat feet or excessive pronation (fallen arches and rolling inward of the ankle joint), aches or pains such as heel pain (Sever’s Disease) or knee pain (Osgood Schlatters).
