We check children’s feet for free

At school holiday time we open up some appointment slots each week for free foot checkups for children under 12.

Parents and grandparents get concerned when the walk doesn’t look right on their child or grandchild.
Sometimes it just needs an expert to say things are all OK.

With children and growing feet we are never quick to change or supplement the natural growing and strengthening of the feet and lower limb. Orthotics can be and often are incorrectly advised and used.

As one of Australia’s most innovative and leading Pedorthic practices BFS Pedorthics provides expert assessment and management of growing feet.

It’s very quick and easy and just gives a second opinion on whether things need further investigation or not.
