The child foot encounters large amounts of change as it grows and adapts to the environment. During these formative years, the foot can be at its most vulnerable as it is having to take the load of the whole body as well as changing it's shape and size, and so any extra stresses or pressures can have long-term and potentially serious effects.

The field of podopaediatrics is one that explores the natural development of the foot as well any pathological conditions that are commonly found in children's feet. It is a specialist area as the child foot and the adult foot are vastly different, and so treatment options for adults feet are not always directly transferable into the child foot. This CPD is designed to help you in your practice to identify foot pathologies in children, and to undertake appropriate treatment regimes for them.
