Children’s Feet

Childhood foot problems do not always cause pain and the signs of developing foot  problems can be difficult for parents to detect. If you are at all concerned about your child’s feet or gait, it is generally recommended to see a podiatrist for professional advice. Many adult foot problems can be prevented through early intervention in childhood.

Common children’s foot and leg conditions

Some of the more common concerns or symptoms related to children’s feet and legs include:

Sports-related injuries can also be problematic. For more information read our article about sport-related foot injuries in children.

Children’s foot development

As parents, we all want the best for our children, and looking after their feet is no exception. The feet are a major source of sensory input and normal development is critical for many activities, including standing and walking. For more information read our tips to encourage your child’s foot development.

If you have any concerns about your child’s foot development, come and see a podiatrist at Entire Podiatry. We can conduct assessments to check for normal foot development at different ages.

Children’s footwear

Once they are up on their feet, most children are very active: in the school playground, local parks, and in various sporting pursuits. But throughout childhood, the footwear needs of your child will change, and choosing appropriate footwear is vital in order to support their growing feet and to prevent foot problems.

School shoes are probably the most important footwear purchase for your child, as they will spend up to 8 hours per day in these shoes. Read our article for more information about choosing school shoes, including tips for fitting and wearing in school shoes.
