Growing Pains In Children

Growing Pains Service – Special Care For Children

How To Prevent Growing Pains

“We know some problems run in the family…”

Many childhood problems are hereditary in nature and some children will be more prone to certain problems than others. Fortunately, early detection can help prevent many problems developing later in life. Considering this, you may like to take advantage of an initial screening assessment for your child to detect any concerns that may need to be addressed.

Our podiatrists at Posture Podiatry have been specifically trained to detect problems early so you can give your child the best possible chance at living a normal, healthy and active life.

We only get one pair of feet! We’re here to ensure they last a lifetime.

The podiatrists at Posture Podiatry will ensure your child has the best possible chance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle.

Call 8362 5900 and ask about our special “Initial Low Gap or Gap Free* Assessment” for children. Terms & Conditions apply. Full details can be found at the following link: Initial Low Gap or Gap Free* Assessment for Children.

We love seeing children at the clinic and take special care to encourage healthy development in children. We address a wide range of childhood concerns that may be common or rare. Some common foot problems and leg complaints in children include:

  1. Flat Feet and Instability
  2. Heel Pain or Sever’s Disease
  3. Ingrown Toe Nails
  4. Plantar Warts
  5. Aching Legs
  6. Growing Pains
  7. Tripping Over or poor balance
  8. Awkward Gait or unusual walking pattern
  9. In-Toe Gait – (aka pidgeon toes)
  10. Out-Toe – (aka walks like a duck)
  11. Bunions
  12. Hammer Toes or Curly Toes

Of all the problems we see, heel pain in children is probably most common. Unfortunately, heel pain is NOT normal but can be resolved quickly with the right help from experienced podiatrists.

You can learn more about why active children get heel pain and what can be done to resolve the problem at the following web page: Heel Pain in Children

If you or someone you know has a child limping after sport or hobbling with heel pain, Posture Podiatry can help. Our podiatrists know exactly how frustrating this problem can be and can help children return to normal sporting activities free from foot pain.
