Caring for Kids

Many foot and ankle problems start from a young age. Unfortunately children don’t grow out of these conditions and need correction to ensure the biomechanics of the foot are not damaged permanently.

Early intervention treatments can help eliminate problems in later life, such as intoeing (pigeon toed), out toed, flat feet, pronated feet, knee, hip and back pain and bunions.

Treatment can commence from as early as 2-3 years of age.  Leaving it until later may mean you miss the early sign of an emerging condition.

If you are unsure if your child needs treatment, read below about the range of common conditions.
