When is a child's foot fully developed and why is this important?
Full skeletal maturity takes place in most individuals between 18 and 23 years of age. Generally, the mature posture of the foot is obtained by age 6. It is important to have your child's feet checked regularly by you board certified podiatric physician, as these check-ups will help children avoid foot complications later in life.
