Geelong Kids Podiatry: Ensuring Healthy Steps for Growing Feet.

Discover why your child’s foot health is paramount and how our specialised podiatry services cater to their unique needs.

Nurturing your child’s foot health is a fundamental aspect of their overall well-being. Our dedicated team understands the significance of healthy feet in supporting your child’s growth and development.

Why Your Child’s Foot Health Is Important

Children’s feet are constantly evolving as they grow, with their development continuing until their mid-teens. This critical phase necessitates specialised attention from experienced podiatrists to ensure optimal foot health. Our Kids Foot Health consultation is thoughtfully crafted to accommodate children and their dynamic, growing feet in a comfortable and engaging environment. Leveraging the Gallop Assessment Tool designed for paediatric lower limb evaluation, we meticulously diagnose issues and craft personalised management plans tailored to each child’s needs.

Common Kids Feet Issues We Manage:

  • Severs (heel pain)
  • Osgood-Schlatters and knee pain
  • Shin pain
  • Ankle pain
  • Toe walking and in-toeing
