Professional Footcare Services for Children
Does your child regularly complain about pain in their feet or legs?
We offer children’s foot health consultations for children from the age of 12 months to 18 years. We believe that many symptomatic foot problems suffered by adults actually start during childhood but remain undetected. Babies undergo regular checks for things like hearing and eyesight but very rarely are they checked for foot-related issues.
Why your child might need to see a foot care professional at We Fix Feet:
Children’s foot problems can include skin concerns like warts, calluses, and corns. Nail conditions like ingrown toenails, toenail infections, and odd-shaped toenails. Balance or motor skills concerns. Foot appearance like very high or very low arches or feet that turn inward or outward.
Some of the children’s services we offer include treatment for:
- Flat feet
- Toe walking
- Heel pain
- Verruca and Warts
- Ingrown toenails
- Osgood-Schlatter’s disease
- Sever’s Disease
We know that as a parent, it can be worrying when you have concerns about your child’s health. That’s why we will spend time with you and your child prior to reaching any diagnosis or recommending any particular course of treatment. But we’ll also be completely honest with you – if we don’t have any concerns about your child’s foot health, we’ll tell you.
