Are you concerned about your children’s feet?
Tim Halpine from Active Feet Podiary can help
Many parents are concerned if their children’s feet point inwards or outwards or appear to have extremely flat arches. Children who are late walkers or complain of sore legs at night may need extra support provided in their shoes. Adolescents frequently suffer a strain to the growth plate within the heel bone, suffering particularly after sport. This condition may be caused by Sever’s Disease, for which podiatrists may prescribe appropriate rest, stretching exercises and soft orthotic devices. Early diagnosis and treatment can assist your child in having a lifetime of foot comfort.
We can treat a variety of problems that children can suffer with their feet. These issues range from warts on their feet (known as verrucae), ingrown toenails and fungal conditions of the skin and toenails. We will explain the treatments provided and offer the best care possible. For appointments ring 04 473 8696.
