Feet are complex structures, which develop and change shape as a child grows. Most biomechanical problems are noticed when a child begins to walk. Due to the changes that occur, the developing foot may appear to have a biomechanical problem, which is actually a normal part of development. The majority of foot development, including the arch, should have occurred by around 7 years old. However some people never truly develop an arch which is not usually a concern.
