Assessment of children’s feet is essential as intervention at the correct time may help to avoid lower leg and foot problems later on in life. As children’s feet are unique due to the different stages of development, we all observe as our children progress from toddlers to teenagers. During this time, children can be exposed to a variety of injuries, which may develop as a result of:
- Growth spurts
- Sporting activities
And can include any of the following:
- Sore heels/arches and knees
- Abnormal shoe wear
