Musculoskeletal and orthopaedic concerns are common in children and young people. This is a result of their rapid growth and changing skeletal system.

Many concerns, known as normal variants (flat feet, in-toeing, toe problems in children) can be mistaken as pathology when they are actually just part of normal development. See Resource section below.
