PODIATRIST, DR. NICK PAGANO STATES, "TODDLERS ARE ALWAYS MOVING AND EXPLORING THE NEW WORLD AROUND THEM.  IN FACT, IF YOU HAD TO WALK A MILE IN THEIR SHOES, YOU'D PROBABLY BE READY FOR NAP TIME BY NOON.  SINCE TODDLERS ARE EXTRA ACTIVE, FINDING THE RIGHT PAIR OF SUPPORTIVE SHOES FOR THEM IS AN ABSOLUTE MUST.  THAT'S WHY THE BEST SHOES FOR TODDLERS ARE ONES THAT FIT CORRECTLY AND ARE HIGHLY FUNCTIONAL.  THE FIRST THING A PARENT SHOULD DO ID HAVE THEIR CHILD PROFESSIONALLY FITTED A FEW TIMES A YEAR.  IT'S INCREDIBLE HOW FAST THEIR FEET CAN GROW AT THESE AGES. YOU DONT WANT THEM TO BE IN TOO SMALL OF A SHOE TO CONSTRICT THEIR GROWTH AND YOU DON'T WANT THEM IN TOO BIG A SHOE BECAUSE THEY ARE STILL WORKING ON BALANCE."

ONE OF THE THINGS THAT MEMBERS OF MY FOT CLINIC STRIVE TO DO IS TO PROPERLY EDUCATE EACH PATIENT WITH REGARDS TO PROPER FOOT WEAR. WE LIKE TO GET THE CHILDREN IN A FEW MONTHS AFTER THEY START WALKING TO ENSURE THAT THEIR ARE NO POSTURAL DEFECTS AND TO MAKE SURE THE THE FEET ARE DEVELOPING CORRECTLY.   WE LIKE TO GET THE CHILDREN INTO CUSTOM ORTHOTICS AT THE AGE OF 3 OR 4 TO ENSURE THAT TH LOWER LIMB DEVELOPS PROPERLY IN THE CORRECT ALIGNMENT.

REMEMBER 'AS THE TWIG IS BENT, SO GROWS THE TREE'.  AT MY FOOT CLINIC WE ALWAYS THINK ABOVE THE FOOT AS A MISALIGNED FOOT AFFECTS EACH AND EVERY JOINT ABOVE IT. YOUR FEET ARE YOUR FOUNDATION.

IF YOU OR A LOVED ONE REQUIRES CUSTOM ORTHOTICS OR HIGH QUALITY FOOT CARE, PLEASE DO NOT HESITATE TO CONTACT US AT 416-465-8737.
