Kids ‘n Motion

Our aim is to develop healthy posture and gait in children. We diagnose and treat all problems of the feet in children aged 0 to 18 years.

Children’s feet are very important and are often are not even checked.

It has been my experience that proper care and treatment of the feet, beginning in childhood, will prevent many of the mechanical and orthopaedic problems seen in adults. Preventative care in the field of Podiatry is just an important to your child as it is in dentistry or general medicine. Many children walk excessively pigeon toed, flat-footed, or are bow legged.

The younger the child, the easier and shorter the treatment in general. If you think that something is wrong with your child’s feet, then it is likely that there is something wrong.

Don’t wait for your child to grow out of foot problems, because many do not. If your child is going to grow out of their foot problems, you should notice steady and gradual improvement from week to week. Critical aspects of postural development occur from birth to eight years when the adult gait patterns are formed. Growing pains can be an indication that there is something wrong.
