CHILDREN'S FEET / PODOPAEDIATRIC
A typical podopaediatric appointment lasts around 45 minutes with you present where we carefully assess the medical history of the child and concerns of the parents. There are a number of natural disturbances that we'll be looking for including: In-toeing; Out-toeing; Feet appearing particularly flat; Tip-toe walking; Frequent falling or tripping.
All of these issues should disappear naturally over time, however if they do not show any sign of decreasing or they seem particularly excessive then we will be able to take the appropriate, corrective action.
It is important that you bring your child in the shoes they wear most often so that we're able to assess their suitability and in some cases Insoles or Orthotics may be required to correct a problem. We'd encourage you not to self diagnose Insole requirements as long term damage can be caused if they are used incorrectly and at the wrong age groups.
In most cases we'd recommend checkups no more frequently than every 6 months - this will allow us to identify their natural progression, but please do not hesitate to contact us sooner if you feel their behaviour requires further assessment.
