Children’s feet are more soft and pliable through the growth years as bones form and the feet take their shapes.
A growing foot is more prone to damage from abnormal pressures. It’s important to have appropriate footwear and that they fit well to allow normal development of your child’s foot. Variations is walking pattern and arch development are normal as your child grows. Take action if your child has persistant foot pain, stumbles often, has continued
toe walking or in-toeing and flat feet. At Boyce Podiatry we can screen for these conditions and recommend treatment to help alleviate pain and keep your child active.
