Active Kids and All Stars
We are all very aware that prevention is better than cure. Therefore, early detection, diagnosis and intervention are paramount for long-term foot health. At Foot Focus 4 Kids, our team of Podiatrists have over 20 years’ experience in assessing foot type, gait and biomechanics in children. We have developed a comprehensive yet unobtrusive children’s foot health program that has been utilised by preschools and primary schools with great success.
The Foot Focus 4 Kids Schools Program involves our team of Podiatrists attending preschools and primary schools in two capacities. Firstly to provide information sessions for parents and students alike, focusing on the importance of foot health, general foot biomechanics, footwear advice and common children’s foot conditions that often go unnoticed until it’s too late. Secondly, to do a brief yet thorough foot screening on all children who wish to participate, providing feedback to parents on their children’s foot health.
The Foot Focus 4 Kids Schools Program is offered as a free community service, the aim of which is purely to inform and detect potential foot health problems. There is no further obligation on you or your child after the assessment.
Our school screening process is quick and fun, typically we observe your child’s posture and gait, incorporating some fun activities aimed at assessing overall biomechanics and co-ordination. If our team detect a potential foot problem your child will be unaware, and a brief report will be forwarded to the school to be passed onto you.
To book your schools program simply ask your school to contact Foot Focus 4 Kids, or request us to make contact with your school.
Remember your feet are vital in maintaining good mobility and health for future years, get them checked early and see the benefits.
