  • TORONTO FOOT CLINIC SHARES SOME INFORMATION REGARDING PEDIATRIC PODIATRY
 

When caring for infants and children, taking care of their feet probably doesn’t jump to mind for a top priority. However, there are several ailments that can affect a youngster’s feet and proper steps should be taken to ensure good foot health.

As early as infancy, take proper measures to ensure good foot health for your baby. This can be achieved by ensuring a few simple steps:

Provide exercise - lying uncovered provides kicking and other related motions which prepare the feet for weight bearing.

Change the baby's position several times a day.

Look at your baby's feet often to see if you notice something that looks abnormal.

Cover the baby's feet loosely - tight covers restrict movement. 

Young children’s feet are very resilient. Foot deformities that weren’t present at birth can result from a variety of factors including tight covers or shoes that restrict foot growth and development. It’s imperative that shoes be flexible and fitted properly. 

As they age, be aware of your child’s walking patterns which may signal a concern.  In addition, foot pain or swelling without explanation could be a sign of a serious condition and should not be ignored. 

Good health is all-encompassing for infants and children. By adding a few simple steps, you can keep them healthy from head to toe.Academy foot and orthotic clinics has been treating families for decades with a high level of success.
