Paediatric foot assessments can take 30-45 minutes depending on the complexity of the problems.

โ€‹

When should a child be assessed by a Podiatrist?

โ€‹

1. Pain in the feet, ankles and legs of a child is never "normal".

โ€‹

2. Children who avoid physical activity should be assessed. Foot and leg instability can be a major cause of discomfort.  From my experience each child should be able to find a physical activity they enjoy. It is important for long term health and wellness. 

โ€‹

3. If your child falls frequently. Particularly tripping over feet and other balance issues.

โ€‹

4. Parental concerns "something is not quite right". Such as unusual shaped feet,  unusual leg alignment, feet that roll in too much, toe walking or in-toed gait or out-toed gait.

โ€‹

5. Delay's at reaching developmental milestones. An example of this would be not walking at 20 months.

Foot Orthotics and Ankle Foot Orthotics.

โ€‹

A foot orthotic  is a medically prescribed shoe insert. They support the feet and improve foot, ankle and leg function.

โ€‹

A  custom foot orthotic is manufactured from taking a 3-dimensional cast of the foot using plaster of Paris. 

โ€‹

A customised  foot orthotic are great low cost options. They are modified to suit your child's need and are awesome for children who are growing fast.
