Kids - When Should They Be Assessed?


Not sure if you should get your kids feet looked at or if it's just something that they will grow out of?

Here are some signs that you may want to bring them in for an appointment...

  1. Visual problems with the way they walk (i.e. in-toeing or out-toeing (walking like a duck))

  2. They have ankles that are weak and easily give out, often resulting in general clumsiness

  3. Pain, swelling or redness that does not subside

  4. Growing pains - particularly in their heels or knees

  5. They fatigue quickly - they complain of walking for long periods of time or don't want to play their favourite sports or activities

  6. Development of thick callouses
