Many people aren’t aware of the importance of Podiatry for kids and adolescents. The development of one’s feet is a crucial part of their life – it is key to ensure they develop in such a way that prevents injuries and problems later in life. Untreated problems can cause severe pain, deformities, and gait abnormalities in the growing child.
Throughout the school holidays in January, we will be conducting FREE KIDS ASSESSMENTS for children before they go back to school and kindergarten.
Our FREE KIDS ASSESSMENTS are a great opportunity to check anything that could be of concern. Common conditions in kids include warts, flat feet, in-toeing, heel pain, shin splints, nail conditions, sporting injuries and many others!
What is included in the assessment?
1. Shoe fit checks – Please bring along their everyday school shoes and sport shoes.
2. Bio-mechanical screening – To look for any abnormalities in the way the feet and legs move during gait.
3. General children’s foot health – Family history, muscle strength, joint flexibility, and posture assessment.
ONLY VALID DURING THE JANUARY SCHOOL HOLDIAYS & FOR PATIENTS THAT HAVE NOT PREVIOUSLY ATTENDED THE CLINIC
