The foot bone

At the time of birth, the baby has a “bone draft” which will complete the partial as it grows. Children’s feet have soft cartilage, richly vascularized, which can be easily compressed and deformed during growth, by ill-fitting shoes, or even at this delicate stage by too tight socks that put all the toes “claw”.

Around 2 years, the child’s cartilage begins to turn into bone. From 3 years, the bones are partially formed (note that the arch begins to form) .

Around 2 years, the child’s cartilage begins to turn into bone. From 3 years, the bones are partially formed (note that the arch begins to form) . Even at this stage, there is cartilage that will fully complete its process of ossification only when growth will be completely finished, that is to say, at the age of 21! In adulthood , the fully formed foot has 26 bones, 19 muscles and 100 ligaments.

It is therefore very important to ensure to fit well its child not only in the early years but until 18 years or more.
