Children’s Podiatry

Caring for Our Littlest Clients

Running, jumping, skipping and bouncing those petit feet have a lot of work to do!

But, when pain bites, every step causes worry and concern.

Is Your Child Avoiding Sports, or Withdrawing from Play?

 

Do you hear them saying:
  • “It hurts when I run”
  • “My shoes are rubbing”
  • “My toenail’s digging in”
  • “My heels are hurting”
  • “I don’t want to play because of my knees”

 

Then it’s time to see SGB Podiatry!

How Can a Podiatrist Help?

Children’s feet and legs are different to ours and require unique treatment and care. SGB Podiatrists are medically trained to work with children and diagnose, treat and prevent problems with their knees, feet and lower legs as they grow.

 

If your child is experiencing pain, you have concerns about their posture or how they walk, or you’re simply looking for advice about the best shoes for a growing child — the SGB Podiatry team are here to help.
