Flat feet are often a concern to parents who are never quite sure if it is part of their child's normal development or something they should be concerned with.
More often than not things will resolve over time. However, in some cases flat feet are symptomatic of a small number of conditions that if treated early may help the child avoid problems later in life.
How can The Podiatrist help you?
- We can assess your child’s footwear and the way they walk
- We can assess your child’s current condition and recommend the best treatment. Some conditions may not need intervention at the current stage. We also work with other health professionals to provide an all encompassing solution e.g. physiotherapy for muscle strengthening.
- We can refer you to the relevant health professional if it is necessary.
