Irrefutable Health – Kingston Podiatrists and Chiropodists

The Podiatrists and Chiropodists at Irrefutable Health in Kingston offer a range of services to help you optimise your health. We strongly recommend all children should be screened for structural problems in their feet to ensure they can be addressed before the bones start to ossify (harden) and fuse together.  We likewise highly recommend a check-up for the elderly and individuals living with diabetes, who often suffer long-term foot problems as a result of poor blood circulation to the extremities.

We offer a complimentary 15-minute foot posture screening to all practice members. Book an appointment today.

An Easy Test to Screen for Foot Problems

A simple at-home children’s screening test for you to do with your child. This test should be done on girls under the age of 16 and boys under the age of 18 whether or not they have knee pain or growing pains. Early detection and intervention will prevent the transmission of a structural problem to go on into adulthood where it eventually could become a surgical problem.

There are different patterns that will not allow normal movement and cause joint damage:

  • Both knee caps do not point in the same direction
  • The direction of the knee caps does not follow the direction of the feet

Learn more about caring for your children’s feet by contacting us today to book an appointment.
