When children first initiate walking, tripping is a common and expected part of the learning process.

As your child starts to take their first steps, tripping is quite common. As their confidence and ability grows tripping should occur less and less.

If you have noticed prolonged and frequent tripping a review with one of our podiatrists can help determine if a foot or gait anomaly is contributing to the issue. The podiatrist or a paediatric physiotherapist can then manage any anomalies.
