We've all heard the term... "Growing Pains". This term is widely overused and there is no evidence that links "Growing Pains" to a child's growth. Dr. Reminga talks about this term, that is widely overused, and states that there is no evidence that links the term to a child's growth. Parents get their children vaccinated, take them to the dentist, optometrist, and make sure their kids eat a nutritious diet... but... what about the important role foot health plays in their overall development?

It's important to remember that children's feet are developing at a rapid rate and need specialized care and attention as a result. The foot is a complex structure comprised of 26 bones. Together, the feet contain more than a quarter of all the bones in your body!

Dr. Reminga also talks about the behavioral changes that can appear if a child's foot or ankle is causing pain. The child may not tell a parent about their foot or ankle pain for fear they will be need to see a doctor. Dr. Reminga also states that actual pain may not be present for a foot disorder to be forming in a child. So... behavioral changes may be the only indicator. Today's program is important for parents and grandparents to hear. Children's foot health can lead to a happier, healthier adult life. Click to listen to this important topic.
