A special offer from a proud sponsor of The Gap FC
As the winter season gets under way your young sporting stars may be complaining of some aches and pains. Due to the nature of soccer it is not uncommon for kids to suffer from foot, ankle or leg pain.
Participating in sport should be an enjoyable experience and therefore attending to pain and injury is essential to ensure our children continue to enjoy their sport.
The good news is that foot and leg problems are treatable and should not prevent our future footy stars from enjoying their game!
We recommend a check-up with a podiatrist when:
- Your child complains of recurrent pain in the feet and or legs.
- Your child is constantly tripping or falling.
- You notice any skin rashes, hard skin lumps or bumps on your child’s feet.
- Uneven shoe wear
- Looks strange when he/she walks (e.g. Pigeon Toed)
- Or if you have any other concerns about your child’s feet.
If you can answer yes to any of the above, it’s certainly worth a visit to your local Podiatrist for a check up. Children’s feet are very complex and, while they are still growing, are quite fragile. That’s why you need to visit someone who knows kids feet and will provide the best solutions available.
