Growing Pains In 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 love seeing children at the clinic and take special care to encourage healthy development in children and address a wide range of childhood concerns that may be common or rare. Some common foot problems in children include:
- Flat Feet
- Heel Pain or Sever’s Disease
- Ingrown Toe Nails
- Plantar Warts
- Aching Legs
- Growing Pains
- Tripping Over
- Awkward Gait or unusual walking pattern
- In-Toe Gait – (aka pidgeon toes)
- Out-Toe – (aka walks like a duck)
- Hammer Toes or Curly Toes
We only get one pair of feet!
The podiatrists at Posture Podiatry will ensure your child has the best possible chance of leading a healthy and active lifestyle.
