Friendly children’s podiatrists in Melbourne

Melbourne Podiatrists & Orthotics love children and our paediatric podiatrists have been treating children’s foot problems successfully for over 30 years. Children’s feet are the corner stone to stability and lower leg mechanics. As children grow, they can be faced with a number of foot problems that affect lower leg mechanics. Many of them are common and will correct themselves with time, whilst others should be treated early for the most effective outcomes.

When should children visit a podiatrist?

If you have any concern regarding your child’s feet or lower legs then you should seek advice from our children’s podiatrists. No issue is too small and our podiatrists can diagnose treat all children’s foot problems including gait issues, ingrown toenails and warts.

If your child is suffering from any lower leg symptoms, exhibits an awkward gait or walk, has flat feet, uneven shoe wear, poor posture and stability then you should schedule a consultation with one of our children’s podiatrists. No age is too young to visit our Melbourne podiatry clinic and the saddest words we often hear from parents are “I wish I had brought my child for podiatry treatment earlier”.

Treatment of children’s foot problems at our Melbourne podiatry clinic

Children's podiatrist MelbourneSuccessful treatment of children’s foot problems can only occur after consultation and diagnosis by our children’s podiatrists. In our Melbourne foot clinic computer gait analysis is often used to help identify the source of walking issues in children. Treatment options for children’s feet vary but may include orthotics, stretching and strengthening. Most children’s foot problems are not of great concern and can be satisfactorily resolved with the right podiatry treatment and advice.

Children’s feet & orthotics

children's orthotics

Children’s feet can benefit greatly from orthotics prescribed by our Melbourne podiatrists. By helping to improve foot function and lower leg mechanics orthotics can help children become more stable and function better. Orthotics can take strain off important lower leg muscles and joints that are prone to overuse in children. They can also help reduce growing pains and symptoms associated with many children’s foot problems including Sever’s disease.

Our children’s podiatrists are highly experienced with children’s feet and are experts in orthotic prescription for children’s feet. At our Melbourne foot clinic we adopt a conservative yet thorough approach when it comes to children’s feet and orthotics and it is a primary reason why we are so successful.

Our Melbourne podiatry clinic stocks a wide range of children’s orthotics, from prefabricated devices to custom. Our children’s podiatrists are experts in custom orthotics and can prescribe devices for children of all ages. At our clinic we guarantee 100% accuracy of children’s custom orthotics through our custom orthotic guarantee. We are unaware of any other Melbourne podiatrist that offers the same level of service when it comes to children’s feet and orthotics, so why choose anyone else?
