The young foot takes time to grow. Podopediatrics, the field of podiatry which specializes in children's feet, deals with problems relating to child foot development, posture and correcting walking styles. We see children of all ages for assessment of problems associated with flat feet, pigeon toes, irregular walking styles, bone injuries and various nail and skin disorders.
People with Disabilities
Podiatrists specializing in the care of people with disabilities can greatly increase mobility and help reduce specific foot pain that they may experience. Depending on the disability, we will assess and treat problems such as: poor bone structure and walking styles, foot and lower limb pain, and skin irritations. We also design shoe modifications and orthoses, and work on muscle rehabilitation.
High Risk Patients
People who have certain medical conditions, such as diabetes or rheumatoid arthritis, often have specific foot problems associated with their feet. Our role is to assess, manage, advise and undertake strategies which will help to prevent further complications.
