Teenagers tend to ignore a lot of things – chores, curfew, hygiene, and yes, even their parents. Included in that list is foot pain. Not only do they ignore preventatively caring for their feet, they also ignore pain when it presents itself.
So what might be causing their issues?
- Sports Injuries
- Hereditary Traits
- Shoes that do not fit well
- Fashion shoes
- Poor posture and walking habits
- Lack of Awareness
