Are your chil­dren’s feet ‘Back To School’ ready?

Warragul & Drouin Gazette - - BACK TO SCHOOL -

Now is a great time to get their feet checked and footwear as­sessed with a cor­rect mea­sure and fit­ting be­fore they head back to school!

Chil­dren’s feet and legs de­velop rapidly, and how they de­velop im­pacts on a child’s abil­ity to get the most out of their ac­tive life.

If they wear foot or­thotics, we ad­vise hav­ing them re­viewed at the be­gin­ning of each school year and when new shoes are pur­chased.

Chil­dren can ex­pe­ri­ence ev­ery­thing from sore heels, grow­ing pains, knee sore­ness, flat feet and warts and in­grown nails, so it’s im­por­tant any prob­lems are iden­ti­fied early.

Poorly fit­ted school shoes can also re­sult in pain, dis­com­fort and long-term com­pli­ca­tions.

The My FootDr po­di­a­trists lo­cated at 1/65 Vic­to­ria St, War­ragul VIC 3820, can iden­tify and help treat these con­di­tions be­fore they be­come big­ger is­sues in the fu­ture.

Visit their web­site­ for more in­for­ma­tion or visit them in-store at 1/65 Vic­to­ria St, War­ragul to get ev­ery­thing ready for the up­com­ing school year.
