Orthotics For Kids? Totally!

November 01, 2017

There are lots of family events going on around here -- like free outdoor movies at O’Brian Park! You can spread a blanket and take in Zootopia starting at dusk. Don’t forget summer Movies for a Buck in nearby theaters as well. Know something else that’s kid-friendly? Custom orthotics! Yep, believe it or not, orthotics can help with kids’ foot conditions, too!

After all, grownups aren’t the only ones with bunions or flat feet. These are all problems that can also occur in children’s feet, and when they do (just as with adults), custom orthotics can help!

Whether a faulty foot structure is causing an abnormal gait and achy arches, or growth spurts are causing tendons to pull too tight and cause hurting heels, custom orthotics for kids can be designed to address each individual need. They can correct alignment, take pressure off painful areas, distribute weight evenly, slow progression of problems, and provide added cushion and support where your child’s feet need it most! In short, children’s foot conditions of all kinds can be treated with orthotics.

So, if kids are complaining of foot pain, seem to be limping, or are not all that excited about putting on their shoes and heading out for some summer fun, shop our online kids orthotics and order a pair today!
