Someone was in my office recently and asked me to look at their child’s feet. They turn in. Often it is called pigeon-toed. What could she do about that? It is obvious the child has a muscle imbalance and the muscles that turn her feet in are stronger than the ones that turn her feet out. Some people say, “it runs in the family.” That doesn’t mean it can’t be changed. The fact of the matter is, something can be done about it. She may have perfect alignment with the right therapy as a child. As an adult, I know she could see improvement, but her improvement might not be as complete as when she is a child and still growing and developing.
Don’t just accept that is the way it is. That may be the way it is right now, but it doesn’t mean it has to stay that way. It can change, especially if the change is done as a child. Even bone remodels. If you get the muscles that are too tight to relax and get the muscles that aren’t doing their job, to contract, her feet may turn out perfect.
Let’s change for the better what we. It will make a difference in that child’s life!
