NHS-Approved Kids Insoles
If you are worried that your child is suffering from foot problems, it’s worthwhile to get them a pair of children’s insoles. Flat feet in children of up to six years is nothing to worry about because their bones and joints are more flexible, and the arch may in fact become visible when kids stand on their tiptoes. If your child hasn’t developed an arch beyond six years old, is complaining about foot, leg or lower back pain, or is walking on the inner sides of their feet rather than the soles, it’s a good idea to see a paediatric podiatrist. They will be able to assess whether this is a more serious condition such as Achilles tendon, tightness of the heel cord that limits foot motion, or painful Sever’s Disease, and may recommend children’s insoles as part of their treatment plan.
Correcting foot problems at an early age is achieved through a combination of stretching exercises and wearing specially designed Orthotic insoles for children’s shoes. With very little disruption to their lifestyle, children’s insoles can help them develop a better walking pattern, eliminate pain and prevent future problems as they grow.
