Does your child need a podiatrist

One of the most important aspects of being a parent is making sure your child is healthy. Not only do children understand less about their health than their parents do, when they know something is wrong, they will often try to hide it to avoid a trip to the doctor. There are so many different aspects of a child’s health & safety to monitor that it can sometimes be overwhelming, and some things can slip under the radar. In this blog, we will outline some of the biggest signs to look out for that indicate your child may have a foot problem.
