Pigeon toe treatment kids

pigeon toes, ankles turning in

Pigeon toe treatment kids to fix kids feet quickly! Have you noticed that your child has been walking with feet pointing inwards and their ankles are slightly lower and kind of pronating. Child’s legs and feet appear to be turning inwards (in-toeing) when they walking?

Does your child trips, fall and position their feet kind of inwards when walking? Those are symptoms of pigeon toe condition that child will develop when none supportive shoes are worn.

Shoes with no support, orthopedic arch, heel support, oversized, made with low quality leather will cause legs to shift inwards and over time child feet will start turning inwards. Condition will become more severe with age of a child.

Pigeon toe will not improve on its own!

Have you spoken to your local pediatrician and they simply told you that child will outgrow the condition. Well, here is the news “THEY WILL NOT!” The condition will develop further and further and child will become permanently pigeon toed and flat footed in adulthood.

Issue is that every USA pediatrician and foot doctor is not taught in medical school about importance of shoes for foot development. The focus is set on making orthodics, surgeries or simply ignoring the problem. In Europe medical approach to supportive shoes is quite different. Doctors are taught and shown impact of shoes on kids feet and how important they are.

Every major European manufacturer always consults Certified Orthopedic Doctor on types of shoes they offer in their collection. Soles are tested and adjusted to average foot, heel support reinforced, orthopedic arch added, best leather used. In Europe doctors are taught that kids feet are flexible and little growing feet can be shaped either correct way with quality supportive shoes or literally deformed with cheap none supportive shoes. Studies on supportive shoes dating back to 1970 were made and major improvements were made to European shoes.

Outgrowing This Condition – Attack The Problem At An Early Age!

Addressing this problem early and taking care of your kids’ feet at an early stage is CRUCIAL in keeping your kids’ feet healthy! Take an advice from European pediatrician or foot doctor since that is the first treatment they suggest is European made high top shoes that feature the following:

  • high in a back with sturdy heel support (heel in the shoe is sturdy and does not bent supporting the heel to the fullest)
  • shoes feature good leather orthopedic arch support with flexible sole
  • made out of quality leather
  • breathable leather innersoles (kids feet sweat more then grown ups so no sweat, smelly feet)
  • wide or narrow soles (depends on the child’s type of foot)

You immediately notice improvement in child’s stability, comfort of walking and over time child’s feet will begun to align and correct pigeon toes. The younger the child the quicker the effect. It takes about 1 year to see improvement and 3 years to see full recovery. It is also important to not to rotate between orthopedic, supportive shoes and cheap none supportive ones, why? Answer is simple: whatever quality shoe aligns the foot in correct position then cheap one will destroy the alignment and you never see any long-term improvement.

Children in Europe does not display any feet deformities simply because they only wear supportive orthopedic shoes from baby to teen years. Shoes are considered as “developmental need” NOT a fashion statement. We suggest that you visit any European country and observe local kids if they display any feet and walking problems……..I guarantee you will NOT see one. Ask any native Italian, Dutch, French, Greek, Polish, German, Swedish, Serbian, Russian if none supportive shoes are ok for a child? They will be passionate with their answer and definitely confirm that best supportive shoes are a must for a child since they correctly form their feet and posture. I bet all of them would confirm that they grew up on those shoes themselves as children and their feet and posture is PERFECT so here you go…..proof in a pudding! (Shoes for us Europeans are like religion – since we walk a lot and well developed feet and posture is a key to good health)

What Is Causing My Child’s To Pigeon Toes? – Learn The Facts!  

In-toeing is NOT totally genetic. About 90% cases are caused by wearing low quality shoes from the time the child starts to walk and is wearing miss-fitted, low quality shoes. The remaining 10% of children are born with twisted tighbone causing pigeon toe condition, but that is truly small number. They are three conditions that often cause in-toeing:

  • Curved foot (metatarsus adductus) (appears over time when child is turning the foot in when walking)
  • Twisted shin (tibia torsion) (turned in tibia bones inside of the legs)
  • Twisted thighbone (femoral anteversion)

Quality or Cheap Shoes for Kids?

In some instances of excessive pigeon toes US podiatrist custom made orthodics for a child to correct the condition. An orthotic is an insole support or brace used to support, align, prevent, or correct the abnormal function of movable parts of the body. It has be be made by a doctor to custom fit a child’s foot so it targets the problem. Orthodics will create some improvement but never restore the foot to healthy condition, only creates some improvement. Only supportive shoes with good arch support, heel support, high tops will do the job. Only EUROPEAN MADE shoes are truly orthopedic ones and there IS NO SUBSTITUTES. Quality shoes cost money to produce thus the higher cost on European shoes. China is not able to duplicate any quality as they only focused on low cost goods.

Avoid love quality shoes at all cost!

Also it is important to mention that orthodics worn with LOW QUALITY SHOES will not create any improvement. The reason is that shoes made in low cost countries are made out of low quality materials, are always clunky (oversized soles), heavy and have no heel support nor orthopedic support of any kind. You just wasting your money and sacrificing child’s feet by buying such shoes. The average production cost of typical child’s shoe in China is $3 and they are sold at $50-60. So profit is made but quality none existent and therefore negative effect on child’s feet.
