Foot Care for Infants & Children

The feet of infants and children are quite adaptable when there are concerns about structure or posture in the growing foot and leg. Early attention can be beneficial; the years before five are pivotal. An infant foot may look flattened because of its thick fat pad, but may actually be normal. Other problems of foot structure may require special shoes, supports or devices to direct the proper bone growth.
