Custom Made Children's Orthopaedic Orthotics/Insoles
Kids' Orthotics for Children and Infants
It has been our experience that proper care and treatment of the feet, beginning in childhood and infancy, will prevent many of the mechanical and orthopaedic problems seen in adults. Many children walk excessively pigeon-toed, flat footed, or bowlegged and, although they are not in pain, they are damaging their feet.
Information about babies feet
As a child masters walking the medial arch begins to appear. All toddlers have flat feet because of a low angle of calcaneal inclination, by 5 to 6 years this angle has increased, and in most cases a medial longitudinal arch becomes apparent.

Orthotic devices are effective in the treatment of children with foot deformities
By around 6 years of age, your child should have normal arches in both feet. Children who appear flat-footed have a normal arch, but flatten it when they stand. This movement is called "pronation" and may cause painful symptoms and make the child tire easily. In this case, specialist kids' orthotics for children may be useful to improve the foot posture and also relieve painful symptoms. Contact us now for more information on orthotics for children.

Kids' orthotics can prevent future foot problems When a parent brings in a child with flat feet who is between ages 6 and 10, a flexible flatfoot is confirmed. If a child is 10 or older, the flexible flatfoot can be considered permanent, and long-term use of orthotics will be required to prevent future problems in the feet, lower extremities and spine. This is especially true for overweight or athletically active youngsters.
Orthotics can be worn in standard children's shoes Orthotic devices are effective in the treatment of children with foot deformities. Most podiatric physicians recommend that children with such foot deformities begin to use orthitics as soon as possible after they start walking, to stabilize the foot. Our children's orthotics can be placed directly into a standard children's shoes and also children's sports or athletic shoes.
