Growing Pains in your child

Does your child or a child you know complain of pains in the feet, ankles, legs or knees? 

Podiatrists don’t consider it “normal” for children to have growing pains.  Often one or a number of the following factors can cause growing pains:

  • ·         Poor foot posture
  • ·         Tight muscles
  • ·         Poor footwear choices
  • ·         Growth plate problems
  • ·         Inefficient gait pattern

A child’s appointment with an Active Foot Clinic podiatrist will include assessment of their foot type, gait pattern, joint ranges of motion, muscle lengths and footwear.  They will then work with you and your child to develop a treatment plan to address your child’s specific foot or gait problem. 

Make an appointment today to see an Active Foot Clinic podiatrist to help keep your child active for life.

We will keep them Walking, Running, Playing and Jumping Without Pain. Phone 6925 8637 today.
