Principal Podiatry treat’s a wide range of foot and lower leg conditions common (and some not so common) with children. Our podiatrists are able to identify normal development milestones within children and advise and prescribe only as intervention is required.

The most common childhood concerns that present to Principal Podiatry are related to walking. During development and growth, parents may notice issues with their child’s alignment most of which can be treated simply with conservative treatment by the physician at Principal Podiatry.

Some common conditions include:

  • In-toeing

  • Out-toeing

  • Toe-walking

  • Flat feet

  • Rigid/ stiff feet

  • Limb length differences


  • Tripping

  • Clumsiness

  • Reduced coordination

  • Reduced muscle tone

  • Children becoming easily fatigued when walking

Overuse Injuries:

  • Sever’s disease (Heel Pain)

  • Osgood-Shlatter’s disease (Knee Pain)

  • Perthe's disease (Hip Pain)
