Flat feet in babies and adolescents

Foot deformity in babies, i.e. flat feet, is formed on the first year of baby's life. You probably noticed the hypertonia of legs, arms and back muscles in your baby. Perhaps, your baby crawled a little? Maybe he/she didn’t crawl for even a month? The baby must crawl at the age of seven to eight months! It is vital for normalizing the muscle tone in the back, waist and legs. Otherwise, there is a risk of developing flatfoot in babies. This happens in the following way: the baby makes an attempt to stand up or stands up too early. This suggests that crawling is inconvenient for him/her, as unnormalized muscles give a sensation of pulling.

There is no reasons to rejoice and boast about your baby got up early. We need to take restoring muscle measures as quickly as possible! You have already lost eight months, listening to the doctors’ stories that everything will go away on it’s own. If you leave the problem without an experienced specialist’s aid, then flat feet may develop with severe pain in legs.

If the baby has yet stood up, you need to take notice about the way he/she spread his/her legs. The correct position is when they are close to each other. In this case, the body weight is distributed on the second toe, a correct foot is formed, when the second toe is longer than the big. Flat feet in babies and adolescents will be formed, if the legs are set apart wide. In this position the body weight is distributed on the big toe and internal arch of the foot. As a result, flat feet develops, which may manifest itself in preschool children and adolescents.


Treatment of flat feet in babies with the aid of massage

There is the only method to eliminate the muscles problems in newborns and this is the emendic massage. Please note that any general tonic massages will not eliminate the cause of muscle hypertonia. In this case, in-depth knowledge and extensive experience of normalizing muscle tone are needed. Myologist Nikolai Borisovich Nikonov has developed a unique massage technique based on the observations and results of 30 years practice. The chief doctor of the "Emendo" clinic could achieve significant results. For these reasons, Nobel laureates support the technique of treating flat feet and other diseases in babies.

Gait restoration in babies using emendic massage is the only method in the world aimed at eliminating the cause of deformity but not at struggling with the consequences. The case is that Nikolai Borisovich works with those problem areas of muscles, which cause flat feet development in babies and adolescents.

The unnormalized muscle tone first results in flat feet, then in scoliosis, back and neck pain, and even in strong headaches.

In the long term the entire burden of excessive diseases can lead to difficulties in childbearing already in your children in future. In connection of the large number of health risks, it is recommended not to postpone a visit to a doctor. Treatment of flat feet in babies is more effective on early stages of foot deformities development. The case is that restoring at advanced forms requires much more time, but is still possible.

Causes leading to flat feet

Nikolai Borisovich Nikonov determined that foot deformity is caused by unnormalized muscle tone. This issue is discussed at the beginning of this article. Remember that the general tonic massage, recommended by doctors, does not eliminate the causes leading to the flat feet development in babies. This is nothing more than a waste of time and money. As a result, the advanced forms of foot deformity bring pain and discomfort in child’s life. You lose your time if the cause is not identified! This is followed with complications, affecting children’s health and reducing activity.

What happens when foot is deformed

In the presence of flat feet in a child body weight presses on big toe of a foot but not on the second toe as it occurs at normal walking. When body's weight presses the big toe of the foot, in order to walk painlessly the child puts his/her foot so that his/her knees displace meeting each other.

At normal foot anatomy the second toe is longer than the big!

If your baby’s big toe is in level with the second one or even bigger that it, it means that the foot collapses inward. The load onto ankle, knee and hip joints increases. If parents do nothing, over the years, the X-shaped legs are formed in the child.

When while walking the knees are close to each other, the gastrocnemius muscles the muscles of the inner part of the hip become swollen. The child gets tired of walking for normal distances or does that reluctantly. Example: at a walk the child moves not on foot but in a baby buggy. The video below shows the gait of a child with severe flat feet:

    1. Regular painful sensations in legs;
    2. Severe pain and hip joint lumbodynia;
    3. Varicose veins;
    4. Destruction processes of hip joint.

For a long period of time Nikolai Borisovich Nikonov relieves children of all ages from flat feet with the help of the author's methods of treatment, in particular emendic massage.
