Louis J. DeCaro, DPM, president of the American College of Foot & Ankle Pediatrics appeared on NBC-TV April 17th to give tips to parents on picking out the right shoes for the right sports. Dr. DeCaro also spoke about the most common sports injuries in the pediatric population and how to prevent them.

According to Dr. DeCaro, “Heel pain and shin splints are two very common painful conditions in pediatric athletes. Over-activity or growth is typically blamed; however the real cause is the biomechanics and foot type of the child and the repeated forces it poses on those structures. Screening your kids biomechanically is essential to prevention and treatment.” DeCaro talked about how critical it is to look at foot motion when repeated ankle injuries happen. “The foot controls the ankle. Control the foot, control the ankle."
