Located only minutes from Churchlands senior high school, our clinic is perfectly positioned if you have young children or teenagers who are budding athletes in need of foot care.
Growing pains are very common in children and adolescents and are even more common in those who are very physically active and engaged in multiple sporting commitments.
The big myth is that nothing can be done for these children.
The truth is that pain is not normal and can be helped with podiatry interventions such as stretching programs, activity modification and foot orthotics (insoles) to help support the feet .
These supports can be helpful for the following conditions:
- Shin splints
- Calf pain
- Knee pain
- Achilles tendon pain
- Heel pain (plantar fasciitis/heel spurs)
Don’t let your child drop out of their desired sport because of pain. You can help them remain fit and active through their teenaged years by calling us today on (08) 92428566 to book an appointment today.
If you have any more questions about your child’s foot health you can call us on the above number and Dr. Stephanie Cooper (Podiatrist) would love to help answer them.
