20 Jun 2018 What Services are Offered by a Paediatric Podiatrist?
Finding the cause of your child’s foot concerns requires a detailed assessment first.
- A thorough birth and developmental history
- History of symptoms
- A biomechanical assessment (including gait analysis)
- Footwear assessment
- Neurological assessment
From these assessments, a detailed and tailored treatment plan including goal setting will be formulated specifically for your child.
Some foot conditions do not require intervention and outgrow themselves naturally. However where appropriate, we can offer a range of treatment options including:
- Foot orthoses
- Stretching programs
- Wart removal
- Treatment options for skin conditions
- Removal of ingrown toenails
- Activity modifications
- Goal setting
Our aim is for you to leave the clinic being well educated about your child’s foot development and how we can help with your child’s feet.
Whether requiring a general check up for peace of mind, or if concerned about your child’s feet, development or gait, do not hesitate to book a consultation today with one of our team’s friendly podiatrists.
