Our feet make up 25% of the bones in our body. They
hold us up and they keep our body aligned. If our feet
function incorrectly it will directly affect the general
well being of the rest of our body, including our ankles,
knees, hips, back and neck.
Starting at infancy right through to adulthood it is
so important that we are good to our feet.
Infant’s feet are made up primarily of cartilage,
with the bones constantly growing and developing. That
is why you will notice that most infant’s feet are
“chubby”; the fat is there to insulate and
protect the continually developing bones. Poor footwear
can cause lasting damage to growing feet.
There are so many different types of footwear available.
Each individual shoe offers different features and benefits.
You could be in the most well made, very supportive shoe
but if that shoe doesn’t fit properly you will not
benefit from any of the support.
When fitting for a new shoe it is important that the
entire foot is taken into consideration. Meaning not only
the length and width of the foot, but the circumference
of the foot as well. It is essential to the development
of your child’s healthy feet that they are in a
shoe that fits properly. Just like adults, every child’s
foot is different.
Not only are children’s feet different, but each
child also develops their own unique walking pattern or
gait. This walking pattern will be worked into their shoes
over time. This is a main reason that shoes should not
be passed down from one child to the next: The next person
to wear that same shoe will be forced to walk the same
way because of that shoes wear pattern.
