The Children’s Podiatry team for Cardiff and Vale University Health Board share some useful information on different conditions that commonly affect the feet and lower limbs of children and young people. Click on the boxes below to read about the symptoms, causes and treatments of these common conditions.
If you have a problem which does not improve as you would expect with self-care, you should contact a healthcare professional for advice. This may be your GP, Pharmacist, NHS Podiatry Service or a Private Podiatrist.
Please make sure your podiatrist is registered with the Health and Care Professions Council and look out for the letters HCPC after their name.
