The American Podiatric Medical Association (APMA) launched their campaign, an online education source of information for both professionals and parents called, ‘First Steps: Keeping Children’s Feet Healthy and Happy,’ this week. The aim, of course, is to provide comprehensive education to the general public about regularly maintaining children’s feet and the true importance; from very young ages on up, of the role podiatrists play in positive health.

"It's important that parents pay close attention to children's feet even before they start to walk, beginning at birth and continuing as they take their first steps, go to school, and participate in sports."said APMA President Frank Spinosa. This only underscores the necessity of podiatrists in providing guidance for keeping a child’s feet healthy at all stages of development and in treating injuries and abnormalities that crop up.

Keeping Children's Feet Healthy

Having healthy feet in childhood can help prevent medical problems later in life, namely in the back and legs. As children grow, their feet require different types of care from birth to school-age.

Although babies do not walk yet, it is still very important to take care of their feet.

· Avoid putting tight shoes or socks on his or her feet
· Allow the baby to stretch and kick his or her feet to feel comfortable

As a toddler, kids are now on the move and begin to develop differently. At this age toddlers are getting a feel for walking, so don’t be alarmed if your toddler is unsteady or ‘walks funny’.

As your child gets older, it is important to teach them how to take care of their feet

  • Show them proper hygiene to prevent infections such as fungus
  • Be watchful of any pain or injury
  • Have all injuries checked by a doctor as soon as possible
  • Comfortable, protective shoes should usually be worn

children's foot healthThe North Iowa Area Community College (NIACC) has teamed up with the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) to collect athletic shoes for kids in need. The objective is to help children who wouldn’t normally have access to this equipment live a more active lifestyle.

According to Ben Back, the president of NIACC’s Physical Therapist Assistant Club, the groups also hope the project will help make the public more aware of the large amount of underprivileged kids living in America. “A lot of us take for granite having five, ten, 15 pairs of shoes in our closet,” Back said, “where as some are at a disadvantage to not have that many pairs of shoes and new pair of shoes might be a big deal.”

sneakers 300As they grow older, children feet start to change and grow in size so it is vital to make sure they are wearing the right shoes. Happy Feet Equals Learning Feet is a organization that was established by Jerry Baird of Union county, and eventually came to Dixon Elementary for their annual “fitting day.” The young students in Webster County were fitted for new shoes, which they will get in the beginning of the 2013-2014 school year since many do not have the financial means to purchase their own.

“The concept behind the program is that when I find out there is a need for shoes in a school, we speak with the school corporation and get their permission,” Baird said. The Family Resource Youth Service Center (FRYSC) determines which students are of need in each of the schools. “The biggest thrill is when we deliver the shoes and the kids turn to their mom and dad and tell them ‘these are the shoes I picked out’,” Baird said.

It is very important to keep children’s feet safe and healthy, so be sure to have their feet regularly checked by a podiatrist such as Dr. Nicholas Crismali of Crismali Foot & Ankle. Dr. Crismali can diagnose any injuries as well as provide treatment options that work for you and your child.
