Is your child suffering from foot pain?

We love seeing children. You may think kids don’t get foot problems but it’s quite common for them to get sore feet and legs even at a relatively young age. We make visiting the clinic fun and not scary.

We want to make sure your child’s feet and legs are developing correctly. Often as a parent, you just need reassurance but other times we may advise the need for exercises to strengthen the feet, specific footwear or additional support. A house rests on it’s foundations and so the feet are the foundation to the body. When they are strong and function well, the rest of the body will also be stronger and work better.

Some of the most common conditions we see in children include:

  • calcaneal apophysitis (Severs) – pain at the back of the heel bone
  • flat feet
  • knock knees
  • intoeing feet

Most importantly, don’t ignore pain in children’s feet & legs. It is NOT NORMAL & should always be assessed & treated if required.

Professional Podiatry Services in Adelaide

What to expect at your consultation

When you see one of our Podiatrist’s at Healthy Life Foot Clinic, you’ll not only feel welcomed but confident in their care.

We’ll initially take the time to learn about you and your problem and how it’s affected you and what it’s stopping you from doing. We will then take a thorough history and perform a detailed examination to determine what’s wrong and the cause of your problem.

Part of the examination will involve observation of your walking which may also include the use of video or Gaitscan (this measures the pressure applied under your feet). We may also refer you for further xrays or ultrasound if indicated.

Finally, we will give you a plan which will clearly detail what the problem is, why it’s there and what we will do to get you back to doing what you love as quickly as possible. Treatment will vary according to your problem but may include a combination of hands on therapy (foot mobilisation and dry needling), strapping, exercise, footwear advice, laser, orthotic therapy and general foot care.
