Does your child often complain about leg or foot pain? Do they suffer from ingrown toenails or have signs of flat feet? Do you want your child to continue to be active in a safe manner? From young age children have their eyes, teeth and hearing checked. However foot development, posture and walking is often forgotten!! Here at Carss Park podiatry SOLE THERAPY, we are experts in children’s feet and growing pains. We are located five minutes from Carss Park at 1/209 Ramsgate Road, Ramsgate Beach, NSW.
As children’s posture, musculature and bone growth undergo many different changes until the age of 18, it is important to ensure their feet and movements are developing correctly prior to this. The earlier you have your child’s feet and posture checked, the sooner they’ll be set up with a stable base for life!
Carss Park podiatry clinic understands the importance of your child’s growth and development and what prevention measures or modifications that could assist. Children’s feet change in length and shape over time, therefore it is important to understand the abnormalities that can associate with your child’s feet and movement.
Signs and symptoms that SOLE THERAPY can help your child with includes:
- Flat feet
- Toe walking
- Pigeon- toed (in toeing)
