Care for your feet: Taking care of your feet is very important when you spend long periods of time on them. Properly fitting shoes with good arch supports and sufficient cushion for walking (which is different for running or for court sports) is very important. Also consider additional arch supports (not just insoles which are flat) that go in your shoes. Spenco is one of many brands of arch supports available. ...Read more

See below: Here are some suggestions: take frequent breaks and stretch your legs. Buy special orthotic pads for the inside of your shoes. Get a floor pad to stand on that is a little soft and so relieves the pain in your back by reducing strain but not too soft that your stance is unstable. Ask your doctor or a physical (or occupational) therapist about where to get it. ...Read more

Yes: That is a significant height for a 3 y/o. I would have her seen at the Dr.'s office and monitored for a little while to make sure pt is acting well. Keep looking for signs of irritability, fussiness, vomiting, change in personality. Any changes need to go to ER right away. ...Read more
