Children may also suffer from foot problems which can have an impact on the functioning of their lower limbs. Podiatrists are advocates of prevention and early detection of foot problems in young children.
A foot examination is recommended in order to detect and prevent future pathologies.
Children experiencing recurring pain should never be ignored. The most common problems seen in our clinics include: heel and knee pains, growing pains and pathological flat feet. Parents should make an appointment to consult one of our podiatrists when a child complains of pain or fatigue in his or her legs while walking short distances or when the child’s feet appear abnormally flat or deformed. We will be pleased to propose quick and efficient treatment options for little feet.
Plantar fasciitis and heel spurs
Your heel feels uncomfortable? You may suffer from a PLANTAR FASCIITIS or HEEL SPUR which has similar symptoms. Fasciitis is the most common cause of foot pain diagnosed and treated by podiatrists.
Postural and biomechanical evaluation
A biomechanical examination which involves an evaluation of the bone structure and muscle performance allows for the identification of mechanical defects or weaknesses in the lower limbs.
Did you know that most orthotic repairs can be done on site? Our clinics are all equipped for manufacturing and repairing plantar orthoses.
