Children’s feet treatment / prevention

Children’s feet are very different from adult’s feet. They are extremely flexible and the bones are soft. While your children’s feet are still growing they are extremely susceptible to injury via, womb position, improper footwear, hereditary influences and poor development. Unfortunately, children can’t always explain what they’re feeling other than saying it hurts. It is therefore vital for parents and people involved in the child’s upbringing, to pay close attention to the development of your child’s feet. Doctors argue that most foot problems and pains in adulthood stem from ill-fitting shoes or poor foot experiences during childhood. It is important to remember that the foot is NOT a separate entity, but an integral body part that supports the entire skeletal structure.

The greatest changes in foot growth occur in the first 3 years. On average, a child’s foot will grow up to 12 sizes during this stage
