Children's FeetPut your children’s health in the hands of an experienced podiatrist

Did you know that at 6 months a child’s feet are mostly cartilage and that it takes until they are 18 for all of the bones to form? Children’s feet grow to almost half their adult size during their first year, and approximately 90 percent of their adult size by age 12. Taking time to get your children’s feet checked out by a podiatrist during this period of development will benefit them for years to come.

Looking after a child’s feet will improve their lifelong health and mobility. Many foot conditions and injuries originate in early childhood development. Children generally begin walking from 8 to 18 months, so a consultation early on can have a significant impact on their future health, like immunisations and regular doctor’s checkups.

Children’s feet are very different to adults’ and that’s why our podiatrists specialise in the treatment of children, providing care specific to your child’s needs. We understand the warning signs and future implications of foot conditions, enabling us to prevent disability and damage in the future.
