Foot Pain in Children

Children usually begin to walk some time between 10 to 18 months. Each child follows a developmental sequence from lying, rolling, sitting, crawling and standing through to walking, running, jumping skipping and hopping.

Your child will develop through most stages in their own way but if you are concerned about the timing or progress of your child’s first steps, their gait or foot posture, senior Feet First podiatrist Wes Huck has a wealth of experience to assist you with developmental assessments and advice.

Although pain in children’s legs and feet is common, it should not be considered normal. Persistent foot or leg pain in children should always be investigated.
