IChildren's Podiatry

Children require qualified, clinical understanding of their development to ensure they can reach their foot and lower limb milestones for use in play, sport and school related activities.  A child's little feet are required to carry the entire weight of a body throughout their lifetime so it is important to remember that early assessment is vital for assessing the source of the problem. Podiatry at Earlysteps can help with this.
