Benefits of Pediatric Orthotics for Flat Feet
Custom vs. Over-the-Counter Orthotics
Custom orthotics are created specifically for your child’s feet, considering their unique needs and providing optimal support. Over-the-counter orthotics, while more affordable, may provide a different level of support and may need to be replaced more frequently.
We can evaluate your child’s feet, gait, and overall biomechanics to recommend the most suitable orthotic solution. Remember that children’s feet grow rapidly, so regular check-ups and adjustments may be necessary to maintain proper support. Orthotics alone may not address children’s flat feet. Encourage your child to wear supportive, well-fitting shoes with a firm heel counter and ample arch support. Avoid shoes that are too tight or narrow or lack proper cushioning and support.
Pediatric orthotics can be an effective solution for children with flat feet, providing support, stability, and pain relief.
