The American Podiatric Medical Association has long known of the high incidence of foot defects among the young and recommends foot health examinations for school children on a regular basis.
Read my step-by-step guide to make sure your youngster has the best start to walking and the correct shoes to set her off on the right foot!
Millions of American children participate in team and individual sports, many of them outside the school system, where advice on conditioning and equipment is not always available.
Parents should be concerned about children’s involvement in sports that require a substantial amount of running and turning, or involve contact. Protective taping of the ankles is often necessary to prevent sprains or fractures.
Parents should consider discussing these matters with Dr Jeffrey Feld if they have children participating in active sports. Sports-related foot and ankle injuries are on the rise as more children participate actively in sports.
“Dr. Feld was awesome with my daughter removing her toenail. Highly recommend! He made sure we understood the procedure and why. My daughter handled it like a champ and I believe a large part of that is due to his bedside manner and making her feel comfortable.”
