Children's Podiatrist Gold Coast
Being parents, we know how important it is for our kids to be enjoying life, free of pain and foot instability.
Children’s feet are constantly growing and changing until the late teenage years. A child’s foot is a complex structure of bones, ligaments, tendons and muscles undergoing rapid development. It’s imperative to be proactive in caring for our kids feet to prevent complications later in life.
Whether you want a check up to ensure the feet are developing correctly, or are concerned about a specific issue, we provide a compete range of services for children from birth to into adulthood.

Along with the common issues we treat listed above, other concerns for you to see a children’s podiatrist include unusual gait patterns, flat feet, uneven shoe wear, poor posture, or instability. If you do suffer from any of these issues, scheduling a consultation with one of our children’s podiatrists is paramount. It is important for our growing children that their foott health is taken care of to prevent issues later in life. We treat children of all ages at our Gold Coast podiatry clinic.
However, if you feel your child would be more comfortable at home – we can also provide an in-home visit.
Our children’s podiatrists may prescribe orthotics to treat your child’s foot issues. Orthotics may be able to improve foot and lower leg function to enable your child to function and grow as they should! Orthotics are particularly helpful in redistributing stresses and strain off the legs to alleviate muscle and joint imbalances in children.
