Symptoms of Plantar Fasciitis
Plantar fasciitis causes pain in your heel. It’s usually worse when you take your first steps in the morning or after you’ve been sitting for a long time. It tends to feel better with activity but worsens again after you spend a long time on your feet. #Myoballs#feet#pain#sitting#selfcare#chiropractic#chiro#chiropractor
One of the biggest questions parents always ask me is: “WHY does my child W-sit?" and there are NUMEROUS reasons for why this may happen. -
Prior to understanding their child W-sits, I first need to do a thorough physical and functional assessment. Once I’ve done my assessment, I always educate families on potential causes for why their child sits that wat. -
One of the biggest reasons is something known as “femoral anteversion” - which is when the hip hasn't developed fully and causes an inward twisting of the thigh bone. This is VERY common (and normal) in kids under the age of 3, as their hip joint hasn’t fully developed this presents with excessive range. Because of this, your child can easily assume a W-position and just needs to work on strengthening their hip muscles to gain more stability.
Other reasons for W-sitting can be:
✅ muscle tightness or muscle weakness - whereby either of these issues causes the hips to turn inward and “adduct”;
✅ poor core strength/control - whereby assuming a W-position gives your child a wider base to sit on, so they don’t have to activate their core to sit upright ;
✅ prolonged time in “baby holding devices” (such as carriers) - which places their hips in an improper position, and doesn’t allow for proper development;
✅ lower muscle tone - which is the resting tension of a muscle, and children with this need to use more effort to maintain proper posture (so assuming a W-position is easier for them); and
✅ poor trunk/core rotation - which is needed to transition in/out of sitting, so without it children will assume a W-position so they don't need to use their core.
Despite all the reasons why children W-sit, the BIGGEST thing Physiotherapists look for is whether children can transition in/out of it. If your child assumes a W-position but:
🅰️ will stay in it <5 mins; AND
🅱️ can assume different sitting positions
… then a Physiotherapists will say your child is a “functional” W-sitter (meaning they can assume it but don’t use it as their primary position) rather than a “structural” W-sitter (meaning they solely stay in this position due to other issues at hand).
