Children's feet are soft and pliable and can be prone to damage. A podiatry check up is recommended if you notice uneven shoe wear, any skin rashes, hard skin or lumps and bumps. Complaining of recurrent pains in their legs and feet or constant tripping and falling also warrants an assessment.  Common conditions diagnosed and treated include flat feet, in toeing/out toeing, Sever's disease (heel pain) and toe walking.
