Watching Your Children’s Step
It can definitely be an exciting time when your baby grows up and learns to walk. You might also start to see some behaviors you didn’t quite expect.
Your child’s arches may look flat as they stand, but reappear when they sit down or stand on their toes.
And if they do stand on their toes, they might walk around like that for extended periods of time. Or their toes might point inward or outward as they walk.
These quirks are often part of a child’s development and learning to walk, but in some cases they can be sign of an underlying problem. The best route to take if you see something out of the ordinary in your child’s arches or gait is to notify us.
We can track your child’s feet periodically as they grow to make sure there are no abnormalities at play and that they are growing out of any peculiarities. If a problem does show signs of becoming permanent, we can take action as soon as possible to mitigate it, often through the use of custom orthotics and physical therapy, to make sure it doesn’t cause any pain or additional problems.
