Spring soccer season started yesterday here in New Jersey. I'm a referee, mostly working games in the Morris County Youth Soccer Association.  Ages 8-19 and its a lot of fun, plus I get paid to exercise.  Not enough to quit my day job, mind you, but it'll buy a few tanks of gas (although not as many as it used to buy).  Feeling all refreshed and exercised after working three games yesterday, I twittered (my twitter address is @ClarkPodiatry) about the start of spring season and that because so many kids grow so quickly that its a good idea to check the fit of the cleats they wore in the fall.

So, ironically enough, the APMA happened to put out an article about kids and athletic shoes today.  Read the article here.  As always, if you have any questions about what you read, or if your child has a problem with common sports-related conditions such as calcaneal apophysitis ( pain in the growth plate of the heel), please call or write for an appointment.
