After a summer of frequently going barefoot and wearing flip-flops, back-to-school shoe shopping can be a painful process for many. “Prolonged weeks of going barefoot and wearing non-supportive and unprotective footwear can lead to both injuries and pain,” said podiatric foot and ankle specialist Adam Howard, DPM.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure! Just as children are seen by a dentist once a year to help ensure healthy dental development, children should be seen by a podiatric physician once a year for examination and evaluation to help ensure the development of healthy feet (the body’s foundation, critical to our mobility), and the annual back-to-school shoe buying ritual is an ideal time for a pediatric podiatric checkup,” Dr. Howard said.
