In today's program Dr. Reminga enters the discussion with parents about the importance of early detection when it comes to their children's feet. Some people take their feet for granted, that is… until foot pain or foot and ankle problems limit their activity. If you're a runner for example... your worst nightmare is a foot or ankle injury. What many runners don't know is that their foot issues could have been prevented at an early age by preventing and treating their foot and ankle issues in their early developmental stages. Sometimes parents think that kids will eventually outgrow foot pain, thinking it's "growing pains." In past shows Dr. Reminga has explained that there's no such thing as growing pains. 

In any case… foot pain in children is nothing to ignore. In reality, studies show that kids who suffer from foot pain early on have a HIGH probability of experiencing foot problems throughout adulthood. These problems may negatively affect performance in running, sports, and engaging in normal activities with their peers. If ignored, a preventable problem could result in bigger, more serious problems down the road. Dr. Reminga talks about prevention and early intervention when it comes to children’s feet. He talks about specific foot conditions such as flatfeet in children as well as the psychological implications if children withdraw from normal activities due to foot pain. Today’s show topic is very important for parents to hear.
