Taking Care of Growing Feet

When children complain of pain or begin to walk awkwardly it is important to investigate further.

Children’s feet are soft, flexible and growing rapidly, this can lead to many developmental foot problems. These problems are generally not too serious and can frequently be resolved by simple treatments, advice, improvements to gait posture and exercise modifications. An Early review can prevent longer term foot & lower limb complications.

At Northside Podiatry our specialists are committed to keeping kids active. Ongoing niggling pain can discourage children who might otherwise grow to love dance, sport, athletics or generally time outside.


Whether you’ve got a specific concern or just want a general check up, at Northside Podiatry we do a thorough assessment and offer expert advice to nurture your child’s growing feet.

We take a holistic approach to children’s foot health, looking at all potential causes and symptoms, and how they fit together.
