Orthotics 3 Quarter Length Kids
If your child is experiencing growing pains, suffering from pain in their heels or knees, or you’re worried that they’re showing signs of flat feet or fallen arches, then orthotics can be useful. Designed by leading Australian podiatrists, our ¾ length kids orthotic insole is a medical grade device which will remove excess stress from your child’s feet, ankles, and knees while aligning their lower limb bone structure into the proper position. Re-aligning kids feet in the early stages encourages natural development and helps prevent or lessen the impact of many biomechanical complaints. Ultra Orthotics kids insoles are safe to use but if your child has a medical condition or major foot deformity then we recommend that you consult your GP or foot specialist first.
It’s normal for all small children to have flat feet but you should notice their arches beginning to develop by the age of 4-5 and by the time they reach 7 or 8, you should see a normal arch. Arch height isn’t a major concern in young children instead it’s more important that your child isn’t rolling their ankles inwards (over-pronation) which is often associated with a low or flat arch. This can cause your child to develop an abnormal walking pattern and although they may not suffer from any specific foot complaint when they’re young, as they grow older they could develop Sever’s Disease (children’s heel pain), Osgood-Schlatters (knee pain in children), or general pain in their feet and/or ankles.
Our ¾ length kids orthotic insole is designed to fit on top of the existing shoe insole which means it can easily be transferred from one pair of shoes to another. Most children don’t have any problems with orthotics although it may take a few days for them to get used to the feeling of arch support. You may want to gradually increase the length of time they wear them, if they find them uncomfortable at first. Wearing orthotics will improve your child’s balance, stability, and posture and decrease their chance of injury. Invest in kids orthotic insoles today to provide them a healthy active tomorrow.
