My child has flat feet what can be done?

Quite possibly there is nothing to do.

Flat feet or feet that pronate (roll in) are not always a concern and often little or no treatment is required.

To put your mind at ease though we recommend getting them checked so that you know your child won’t have any issues in the future.

If they do require therapy this might include footwear changes, exercise programs to strengthen any disadvantaged muscles or orthotics to improve the position of the child’s foot and leg.

All of these can make a huge difference to avoiding any future injuries.
