Children’s podiatry

Most children start walking between eight and 18 months of age. To start of with, most toddlers are flat-footed or walk with their feet turned inwards. Unfortunately at this stage, ligament stiffness and muscle strength is yet to catch up to the other developments. However, these problems always improve as feet become stronger. During the development stage, it is often difficult to determine what is normal development, as children’s feet grow at different rates. If you have any concerns about your child’s feet it is important to discuss them with a podiatrist. With our podiatrists, you can ensure your children’s’ feet are in good hands.

For people who are afflicted with diabetes mellitus, they can also suffer problems with their motor, sensory and autonomic fibres.
