We frequently advise parents who are concerned about the development of their children’s feet, walking patterns, posture and/or pain. We are happy to say that in many cases, reassurance, postural exercise and a change of footwear is all that is needed, and occasionally, orthotics may be required.
We can advise you whether your child’s lower limb development falls within acceptable limits for their age, or if treatment may be required. Please do not dismiss your child’s complaints of aches as growing pains. The reason for ongoing and persistent aches and pains can sometimes be down to a misalignment of foot and ankle, leg posture or biomechanical dysfunction of the lower limbs.
