Knowledge is essential for the diagnosis of problems often mislabelled as “growing pains”.

Do not wait for children to grow out of foot problems as many do not.

If you child is going to grow out of foot problems you should notice steady and gradual improvement from week to week.

Critical aspects of postural development occur from birth until eight years when adult gait patterns are formed.

Growing pains can be an indication that something is wrong.
