As parents and caregivers, we have an enormous responsibility trying to protect our children and promote their optimal well-being. This handy list can help you understand the most important elements of caring for your child's feet.
Childhood is perhaps the most wonderful time of all. Your feet have to last you a lifetime, and Arch AngelsŪ wants to be there every step of the way.
The three most common visually recognizable problems with healthy children's feet are:
There are other common foot problems in children that can be hidden. Many of them occur because of overuse (often when children start playing sports) and poor support from popular kid’s shoes .
Children may complain of foot cramps, leg cramps, or arch pain because their feet are positioned and supported improperly inside their shoes.
It is important to approach foot care much like dental care for children, an ounce of prevention is worth a lifetime of healthy, happy feet. Focusing on proper support in shoes and using products like arch supports and comfort insoles when playing sports—much like a helmet or mouth guard—are steps to ensure that children's feet do not develop long-term problems.
Children with pediatric flat foot, and in-toe or out-toe gait are ideal candidates for arch supports. There is a growing body of evidence that using arch supports for children with mild symptoms such as foot fatigue, and leg cramps, can provide relief to children in these situations. Often, a podiatrist will suggest that parents try an over-the-counter arch support to alleviate these symptoms, and it has been found that children respond very well to this treatment.
