BOOK PREVIEW

Is Your Child Walking Right?
by Andrew Chong, M.D.

A Book for Every Parent
In-toeing, out-toeing, flatfeet, knock-knees, bowlegs, toe-walking, sudden refusal to walk: these afflictions of childhood are so common that together, they affect all children at some time during their growth and development.

Pediatricians, orthopedic surgeons, podiatrists, grandmothers, and shoe salesmen all have strong opinions, yet all are so conflicting! Advice ranges from doing nothing, to shoes, to braces, and even to having surgery! The myths surrounding these conditions even cause professionals to be confused. What is a parent to do?

Here is a parent's guide to little feet. Written by a Harvard-trained pediatric orthopedic surgeon in simple conversational style, it will help parents gain new insights into the whole spectrum of foot and walking disorders in childhood. A unique chapter on shoes shows parents how to save money while buying good shoes for their children.
