Children’s feet are different to adults as the bones are soft and can be easily affect by abnormal forces and pressure. A wide range of growth plate and developmental disorders can occur in children’s feet in addition to conditions regularly suffered by adults. Conditions for children include:
Flatfeet, intoeing, out-toeing, knock-kneed, bow legged, growing pain, leg length difference, low muscle tone, bunions, warts, ingrown toenails.

• increased benefits on most podiatry services
• on-the-spot claiming facilities, because our network podiatrists submit claims electronically
