Paediatric Podiatry

Children’s feet differ from those of adults, as they are not yet fully formed. 

At 6 months of age the foot is still mostly cartilage and the last bone doesn’t begin to form until children are about 3 years old. By 18 years, most of the bones are fully formed. 

Children usually begin to walk at any time between 10 and 20 months of age. It is important to remember that each child is unique and will move through the developmental stages at their own pace.

Children's Podiatry and foot care

Children can experience a variety of foot complaints that can affect their development and activity levels. Foot pain is not common in children compared to adults due to the flexibility and resilience of the tissues.
