Does your child ever complain of pains in the feet, ankles, legs or knees? Maybe they cry at night time with cramps or after activity?
Growing pains are not ‘normal’ and may have an underlying cause, such as:
- Poor walking pattern
- Growth plate problems in the bones
- Tight muscles or loose ligaments
- Poor foot posture
- Inappropriate shoes
At Brindabella Podiatry we will perform a thorough walking assessment, look at muscle lengths, joint range of motion, footwear, and activities/sports. Once we have a diagnosis we will develop a treatment plan. We will also refer direct for X-Ray, MRI or Ultrasound if we need diagnostic information.
