Child Pigeon Toe
Seeing a child's foot factor inward may pose some challenges. It is common condition in children and it is caused by wearing none supportive, ankle high shoes from young years. The feet begun to turn inwards pigeon walking since no ankle support is present and body gait becomes affected. Kids with pigeon toe can run normally, and the condition rarely causes ache. Occasionally they might trip due to toes heavily pointing inwards. Cheap none supportive walkers for children (usually made in China) offer no structure no support, no alignment support thus by wearing such footwear over time parent notices that child begins to toe in. That is why it is important to invest only in ankle supportive walkers from day child takes first steps. They could be sandals, boots, sneakers but with sturdy, reinforced ankle support. Europeans manufacture the footwear by adding peace of leather that holds the foot straight in aligned position, in a heel packet with reinforced heel counter. Only genuine manufactured in Europe have that feature. European walkers offer proper ankle support, good orthopedic arch, heel support, flexible soles and none sweat soles. Avoiding local none orthopedic footwear type of Crocks, Keens, Merels, UGS, soft soled, cheap sneakers, none supportive made in low cost countries. Immediate intervention with preventive walkers is required and important.
US Pediatricians vs European Foot Specialists:
US pediatricians refers to condition pediatric in toeing or Metatarsus Adductus and suggest to parents that condition will subside itself and no treatment is needed. THAT IS NOT TRUE ON SO MANY LEVELS. If no supportive pigeon stop sandals are worn child will grow and condition will stay permanent this is total deformation of kids legs and posture! Child can only get rid of pigeon toes when they are growing and their legs are forming. The sooner child starts with supportive pigeon walking stop footwear the better. Legs stop forming by age 15 and by then it is too late. This is a recommendation of European pediatricians and foot specialists to wear supportive pigeon walking stop footwear only and watch kids transform into correct position. Europe has a strict orthopedic laws that are established and enforced by European Ministry of Health that regulate children footwear industry in Europe. No cheap footwear from China are allowed for import or sale nor local producers are allowed to manufacture them in China out of low quality materials. Local sneakers with good support are enforced and regulated. This system alone saves the European Union money on orthodics, doctors visits and future health complications caused by deformed legs and posture. Just think about it - Italians, Germans, French, Spanish, Polish, Greek, Serbian are leaders in leather and shoe manufacture. Do you think they would produce none supportive pigeon stop footwear for their children so they will deform their posture. Have you ever had had European adult shoe yourself and was that not the best shoe you ever had? We talking about quality here, craftsmanship, durability but for child especially orthopedic health factor. Do you think Europeans buy those pigeon toe stop footwear for appearance sake and pay great money for them? Definitely not! If there was no health, orthopedic benefit in those walkers then no European would buy them. However, since we pay good money for them and we buy only 2 pairs per season - we want them to look effective so child can wear them non stop and that is the only sneakers they get. Child only needs 2 pairs of good pigeon toe stop sneakers per entire 6 months and rotate them only. Do not rotate them with other cheap sandals sold in USA as you never see any improvement. Basically the logic is quality sneakers immediately begun to form kids foot and align it into correct position, vs cheap one deteriorate legs even further.
Pigeon toes and Adults:
There is no possible way to fix pigeon toes stop when adult. None, no treatment! Adult with pigeon toes walks like a duck and that is horrible look plus entire body gait shifts and becomes affected. Person with pigeon duck walking will experience back pain, pain, knee pain, shoulder pain and entire posture deforms and deteriorate over time. Surgery only exists to relive foot pain and discomfort but the bones in the body will deteriorate further as whole body gait is uneven and affected.
Condition in various children age groups:
Babies: The front of the foot often bend in closer to the center of the foot. The outer part of the child's ft will frequently have a 1/2-moon form. This often occurs in each foot.
Toddlers elderly from 1 to three years: child in this age institution that has pigeon condition can also appear bow legs. The condition is usually visible in babies is usually the result of tibial torsion, in which the shinbone rotates inward.
Children between three and 10 years: Femoral aversion is the maximum common motive of pigeon toeing on this age organization. Kids with this frequently choose to sit in a "w" function, where their knees seem to move inward. There may be no damage in allowing your child to sit down in this function in the event that they decide upon it.
Genuinely kids will NOT outgrow the condition by the time they are teens if no corrective walkers are used but condition left untreated with appropriate walkers. This condition will affect how child walks, runs, or plays sports. Child can fall, stumble and trip constantly. If that condition is not corrected when a child is becomes permanent in adulthood. Therefore, buy only best quality European made ankle supportive to early correct that condition in your child. Usually you see improvement within one year of wearing supportive walkers only, and in 3 years the legs begun to line up and will become straight when walking. Very important to mention, DO NOT ROTATE THEM WITH ANY LOCAL FOOTWEAR MADE IN CHINA AS THEY NOT ORTHOPEDIC (KEENS, CROCKS, UGGS, MERRELS, NEW BALANCE, ADIDAS, NIKE, APAPKOVA, OR ANY FLIMSY LOCAL SNEAKERS SOLD IN USA. IF YOU ROTATE THEM WITH NONE ORTHOPEDIC SHOES YOU NEVER SEE ANY IMPROVEMENT. Quality supportive shoe aligns the foot into correct position and cheap one deforms it so it will be like jojo effect.
