Custom Made Orthotics for Children's Flat Feet
Flat feet can occur in children with a variety of symptoms. Flat feet is a term for foot deformation from hyper pronation caused by loss or immaturity of the medial longitudinal arch. Flat feet are classified into pathologic flat feet with various primary causes, and physiologic flat feet without the development of the medial longitudinal arch. Flat feet in children are usually physiologic flat feet. They are found in about 90% of children under the age of 2. This article will cover the use of custom made orthotics for children's flat feet.
According to a research by the Inje University Ilsan Paik Hospital, Goyang, Korea, flexible flat feet, the medial longitudinal arch will vanish when the patient supports his own weight. The medial longitudinal arch will appear when the patient stands on his toes or heels, although in rigid flat feet, it remains low regardless of girth.
