Common Conditions in Children

Below are some tips as to how best care for your child’s feet:

  • Always have your child’s feet measured for width and length
  • Check the size of their socks
  • Inspect their shoes for unusual wear.  Normally, wear is across the back of the heel or between the back and the outside. You should look out for severe wear on the inside or outside of the heel which may carry forward to the sole of the shoe.  Unusual wear may be the first indication that there is a problem with the foot posture or general posture and should always be investigated by your Podiatrist.
  • Alternate shoes to allow them to dry out, particularly if the foot is sweaty.
  • Avoid the use of plimsolls in school all day everyday. If a change of footwear is required in school,a fitted pair of lacing trainers is best
