Understanding The Basics Of Toe-First Steps And Achilles Tendon Problems
If your child's Achilles tendon is not developing as it should, their doctor will recommend having the issue corrected as soon as possible. Because that tendon runs from the calf muscle all the way down to the heel, walking, running, and even standing can become a struggle if it doesn't grow properly. In most cases, Achilles tendon problems will need to be surgically corrected. Before your child goes in for this surgery, you should understand what's involved.
