“Prevention is better than correction,” said podopediatrician Dr. Louis DeCaro, the incoming president of the American College of Foot and Ankle Pediatrics, the APMA group which specializes in children’s foot health. “My main mission is to make sure that my colleagues and the public know that much of the correction that they are doing in their adult population is preventable.” The first step of prevention is to start evaluating the condition of a child’s foot as early as age four. 
   
Dr.  Louis DeCaro
 
According to DeCaro, the most common condition that afflicts children is flexible flatfoot, a disorder caused by a foot that does not become rigid with age coupled with an increased eversion of the arch. Most children younger than four typically have a flat foot, but develop an arch later in childhood. Some key indicators a child zero to four years of age may develop flexible flatfoot are poor coordination, balance, posture, and strength.
