Frequently asked questions

Is it best for my child to wear shoes?

A child that starts to walk should be encouraged to walk barefoot where safe to do so, or wear a protective/soft shoe when outdoors, as this aids muscle and nerve development of the foot. As your child grows, the shoe should become supportive and always have fastening mechanisms.

Is it normal for my child to have flat feet?

It is normal for children to appear to have flat feet up until the age of 7, at which time this should naturally resolve.

What does a paediatric assessment entail?

We will assess your child’s hip, knee, ankle and foot range of motion, assess their walking and footwear, and take a comprehensive medical history.
