PROBLEMS WE SOLVE

Kids Feet

Kids are always growing and changing - but that doesn’t mean they should be in pain. If you’re worried about your kids feet, their development or anything unusual you’ve noticed, you’ve come to the perfect place.

Great foot health can begin in infancy by keeping your baby's feet free from constriction. As kids grow and gain strength and stability, problems can arise that can affect their ability to continue to walk normally and continue the regular development of their bones, joints, muscles and soft tissues. As kids get even older and are constantly running and playing, legs and feet can become excessively sore and tired if the foot posture and alignment is irregular.

Thankfully, it is because kids feet are still growing and changing that they respond very well and quickly to treatment and rehabilitation to get them moving, running and playing at their best!

We are the kids foot experts. If you can’t find what you’re looking for on our website, give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer any questions you have.

Sever’s Disease (kids heel pain)

Sever’s Disease (kids heel pain)

Before you start to worry, rest assured. Sever’s disease is not an actual disease but a painful condition that will resolve. Clinically referred to as Calcaneal Apophysitis, Sever’s has often been referred to as ‘growing pains’, though this does not describe how and why the pain occurs.

It feels like you’re watching your kids grow and change before your eyes every day. With many changes being a regular part of growth and development . . .

‘W’ Sitting

‘W’ Sitting

If you look front on when your little one is sitting like this, their legs form a ‘W’. If you’re thinking ‘but my child does that all the time’, don’t be alarmed.

Kids Shoes & Pain

One of the things that I find on a regular basis is children presenting with calcaneal traction apophysitis - AKA Sever’s Disease - wearing ‘cheap sneakers’.

Two weeks with Calcaneal Spur and finally got to see Doc. He sent me to Kevin @ Eleven and with One Appointment, he had me walking without Crutches. Yes! It still hurt. Did the Stretching, Rolling my Foot on a Spikey ball and Iced it occasionally. Return visit, after he had his Holiday, and I' am walking fine. They do NOT want to see me again, unless it deteriorates. Which it has not :-)
