ADVERTORIAL: Foot care - The importance of Childrens' feet


Conditions such as flat feet, walking pigeon toed or hypermobility often cause tiredness and difficulty when participating in sport for children. As a specialist in childrens' feet for over 25 years, Dr Patsy Parfitt regularly treats Severs, Tendo Achillitis, Plantar Fasciitis, hyper-mobility and heel pain. Patsy told us, “Early treatment of childrens’ flat feet/knock knees and in-toeing gait is recommended as it helps prevent more serious and often painful, knee and back problems as an adult. It also improves upper body posture. Often I treat the parent too.” 

Dr Patsy Parfitt, Phd, MSc, MPodA, HCPC. Podiatrist.
