FOOT CARE FOR CHILDREN

AT ACADEMY FOOT AND ORTHOTIC CLINICS WE TAKE A SPECIAL INTEREST IN FOOT CARE FOR CHILDREN.  REMEMBER AS THE TWIG IS BENT, SO GROWS THE TREE.  MOST PEOPLE ARE BORN WITH A GENETIC DEFICIENCY CALLED OVERPRONATION.  THIS AFFECTS EVERY JOINT FROM YOUR FOOT UP INCLUDING YOUR SPINE.  ALSO IF OVERPRONATION IS LEFT UNCORRECTED DURING THE GROWTH OF THE CHILD, IT AFFECTS THE DEVELOPMENT OF EVERY JOINT SUCH AS THE KNEE, HIP AND SPINE, MANY TIMES WITH NEGATIVE RESULTS.

WE LIKE TO HAVE OUR PATIENT'S CHILDREN CHECKED AT 3 YEARS OF AGE TO SEE IF THEY REQUIRE CORRECTIVE CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.  BY PLACING THE CHILD IN THE NEUTRAL CORRECT POSITION YOU ALLOW THE CHILD TO GROW IN THE CORRECT POSTURE.  THE ONLY THING ABOUT PUTTING A CHILD IN CUSTOM ORTHOTICS IS THAT THEY HAVE TO REPLACED YEARLY AS THE CHILD IS GROWING.  IF YOU ARE NOT PREPARED TO HAVE YOUR CHILD FITTED FOR NEW ORTHOTICS ON A YEARLY BASIS YOU SHOULD NOT THINK ABOUT GETTING YOUR CHILD CUSTOM ORTHOTICS.

ORTHOTICS CONTRIBUTE TO OVERALL HEALTH, INCREASED PERFORMANCE IN SPORTING ACTIVITIES AND LESS STRESS AND DEGENERATIVE CHANGES IN YOUR JOINTS.
