Feet take a beating. The effects of obesity and sedentary lifestyles, plus modern foot coverings — shoes — often not only fail to protect the foot but instead abuse the little darlings. And trouble can start early. George Merritt, DPM of Tallahassee Podiatry Associates said children frequently show an unnatural degree of pronation, an inward roll of the foot, and supination, an outward roll of the foot.

Dr. Merritt said such conditions can lead to gait problems and, later, orthopedic issues. Merritt, a runner, emphasizes the importance of wearing the right shoes, which he says provide protection from “stepping out of bed in the morning, until getting in at night.”
