• The Benefit of Your Child Walking Barefoot

    on Nov 16th, 2018

It is known that the feet are comprised of 26 bones and several hundred muscles, ligaments, and tendons. It’s important to pay close attention to your child’s feet, which may ensure they develop normally. The majority of babies are born with flat feet and will typically grow until they reach approximately 18 years of age. Research has shown the importance of having your child walk barefoot while in an indoor environment as often as possible, as this may promote full stretching of the toes. Additionally, children’s feet will benefit by being measured regularly so the correct size shoes can be purchased. If you would like additional information about how to prevent uncomfortable foot conditions from developing, please speak with a podiatrist.

 

Making sure that your children maintain foot health is very important as they grow. If you have any questions, contact Dr. Adam Resnikoff from Third Avenue Podiatry and Foot Surgery Center. Our doctor can provide the care you need to keep you pain-free and on your feet.

 

Keeping Children's Feet Healthy

Having healthy feet in childhood can help prevent medical problems later in life, namely in the back and legs. As children grow, their feet require different types of care from birth to school-age.

Although babies do not walk yet, it is still very important to take care of their feet.

As a toddler, kids are now on the move and begin to develop differently. At this age, toddlers are getting a feel for walking, so don’t be alarmed if your toddler is unsteady or ‘walks funny’. 

As your child gets older, it is important to teach them how to take care of their feet
