Podiatry Care For The Whole Family
Being a kid is busy work. Great podiatry care is there to ensure that kids can stay active and pain-free on their feet, meaning that they’re free to explore, adventure, play, and learn without being held back by discomfort. At Midland Podiatry, we’re passionate about using our expertise in feet and legs to get children of all ages back to doing the things they love.
Working with little ones can also require a welcoming atmosphere – one that we love providing! Our facilities are completely family-friendly, and our team of podiatrists is always ready to greet your child with a big smile. Sometimes kids can feel nervous or unsure when visiting healthcare providers, but we can guarantee that the entire process will be as smooth and friendly as possible, from start to finish.

Tailored Podiatry Care
Children require a different approach to care and treatment than adults do. That’s why our services are tailored to keep healthcare accessible, welcoming, and comfortable for young ones of all ages. Our appointments are built to work with the unique needs and preferences of your child, ensuring they understand the treatment they’re being provided at every step.
Our care plans are built around the children we work with, ensuring that their individual treatments suit their health requirements whilst also integrating into their regular lives as seamlessly as possible. One way we love to achieve this is by incorporating activities they already enjoy into their care plans, working to maximise their overall outcomes while keeping them happy and allowing life to feel as normal as possible.
The Importance Of Children’s Podiatry
There’s nothing quite as vital to our bodies, health, and daily lives as our ability to function and move safely. Children’s podiatry is an immensely important facet of healthcare that can help catch tiny problems before they develop into lifelong conditions or setbacks. Treating your children for injuries or unexpected conditions is vital to the care we provide, but as is offering checkups and examinations that can ensure the structure of your child’s lower limbs and their natural gait isn’t going to cause problems down the line.
We work to catch abnormalities efficiently and come up with an effective treatment plan that is going to protect your child’s health and well-being for many years to come.
Frequently Asked Questions
What ages do you work with?
At Midland Podiatry, we can work with patients of any age! If there’s a problem with their feet or legs, we will be happy to help your child out however we can, no matter their age.
Do we need to bring anything to the appointment?
If your child has any relevant medical history for their lower limbs (ie, X-Rays or scans for previous injuries), then those will be beneficial to bring along. Sometimes it’s helpful to see the shoes your child typically wears to get a full picture of their walking habits. Apart from that, your podiatrist will communicate any other important details.
When should my child see a podiatrist?
It’s never too early to get your child checked by a professional. If you’re noticing something a little off, or if your child is expressing discomfort, then it’s always better to address those problems as soon as possible.
How do I know if my child is walking strangely?
Honestly, sometimes a parent will just know best. If you think there’s something off or concerns about your child’s gait, the structure of their lower limbs, or the way they stand, then it’s better to book an appointment to check it all out, just in case.
