What is Children’s Podiatry?
What can a Podiatrist do?
Our podiatrist at Reform Podiatry Camden has extensive clinical expertise in assessing, diagnosing and treating children effectively. He specialises in identifying lower limb developmental concerns whether they be symptomatic or asymptomatic and providing a clear treatment plan to maximise your Childs health outcomes. When should you see a paediatric podiatrist? What is the importance of having your child’s foot assessed?
Your Macarthur foot doctor will perform a thorough clinical assessment on your child to determine the most suitable form of treatment – if ant, for your kids. Sometimes reassurance that everything is good and within normal limits is what some parents need to hear.
When deemed absolutely necessary, your paediatric podiatrist will take a 3D scan of your Childs foot, to make a custom foot orthotic.
The three main objectives for orthotic prescription are to support the foot, to align the lower limb and improve foot function whether that be for day-to-day activities or elite performance. These three objectives can often only be achieved through an orthotic made specifically for your foot and lower limb.
