As we think about our heritage this week, let’s take a moment to think about the heritage we will leave behind; our children, the greatest inheritance of all. While we teach our children about the importance of our past, we give them the best hope for the future.

What is Podopaediatrics?
Paediatric podiatry is differs from general podiatry in a number of ways. Firstly, the developing foot provides unique challenges that are not encountered by its adult counterpart due to the nature of its growth and development. Not only is the foot subject to the many changes encountered by its development and growth, but the foot is required to adapt and compensate for these changes. This often requires the whole body to adapt resulting in postural and biomechanical changes. The foot, legs and pelvis are most often affected as these structures are so closely linked to walking and normal functioning.
