Paediatric Podiatry- Kids feet
Children’s feet are different from adults not only in size but in the fact that they are changing all the time, normal change. So we have to be very careful in assessing and treating them differently as the will change size and shape as the child grows, so what may seem to be a problem now may no longer.
We can assess you and together decide if you would benefit from these treatments. We use state of the Art 3d scanning to get the best fit and function from custom orthoses made by our partner labs and world renown FORMTHOTICS as our semi-custom orthoses options.
