Do you know the rules for starting the school year on the right foot? Dr. Naghmeh Lilly Khavari of the Carrollton Foot Center is here to help you and your family walk into the classroom with confidence about foot health and shoe choices. Here are a few questions to consider about your footwear this fall.
Are you sure about the shoe size?
One month can make a big difference. Before you pick up a new pair of shoes in the same size as last month, think again. Take the time to measure your child’s feet. Whether the growth has been a half size or more, it’s worth your time to start things off right. Wearing ill-fitting shoes at a young age can impact future foot health.
Are you picking color over comfort?
Trends come and go, but foot pain may stay. While selecting shoes during the back-to-school season, focus on comfort and support. Yes, shoes can be both fashionable and properly fitting. Now is the time to teach your child about the value of choosing long-term foot health over short-term trends.
Are you ignoring foot pain?
From sitting on the sidelines to complaining about wearing shoes, listen to how your child speaks about their footwear. Also, inspect your child’s feet. Redness, swelling, or others signs of pain are a cause for concern. Schedule an appointment with a podiatrist.
Are you considering orthotics?
Custom orthotics are for children, too. Learn more about how these prescriptive devices address your child’s unique foot needs. Pediatric foot care is a critical part of development, so don’t delay in exploring your options.
