Orthotics is especially important when it comes to children and their foot health. Most children are born with flat feet and their arches only start to develop as a response to standing and walking. Also, kids are prone to developing Sever's disease, a condition that results when activities such as walking, running or jumping affects the growth rate of their heel bones. Most shoes lack the correct foot support. However wearing orthotic insoles specially designed for children helps them develop the right kind of arch.
Each pediatric case is unique, and your child deserves the care and attention of a podiatrist who wants to exceed your expectations.
