The London Podiatry Centre frequently advises parents who are concerned about the development of their children's feet. Compromised posture, pain or unusual walking patterns are other reasons why they will consult the Centre. Often only reassurance and postural exercise is required but sometimes specialised orthoses or other forms of treatment are indicated. In some instances computerised gait analysis is required to study a child's walking pattern so as to determine the extent of the problem.
Some children present with deformities and lesions such as verrucae which are commonly treated at the centre although surgery is generally avoided until adulthood.
Clinicians at the centre have many years of experience in paediatrics and have been actively involved in training other medical professional.
