There are many physiological and anatomical differences between children and adults therefore children require a specialised approach to their orthopaedic management.
All children grow and develop differently; a bow-legged, wobbly walk is sometimes normal when baby has started walking but as time goes by, a problem might present itself in your child’s gait.
If you start seeing clumsy walking, tripping, leg pain, knock knees or continued bow legs then consider booking an examination by our qualified podiatrist.
In fact, anything that is causing concern about a child’s growth and development such as excessive wearing down of shoes or tripping up or pain should always be checked out, if only to give you peace of mind.
Our children’s assessments usually take 1 hour and include range of movement, strength, functional, neurological and gait assessment. With our younger patients we encourage assessment through play and provide a safe and welcoming environment in which to do so.
Depending on the type of problem and the individual condition for your child, we have a number of treatment options.
