Podiatrist, Dr. Michael Pliskin states, "all healthy babies are born with flat feet.  So they all initially have the appearance of a flat foot. That's why new baby footprints are so full and cute. If, as the baby becomes a preschooler, no arch appears, parents should either point it out to their pediatrician, who may recommend a consultation with a podiatrist, or make an appointment directly with a podiatrist. A podiatrist might suggest a custom-made orthotic device be placed in the child's shoes, depending on whether the child is experiencing symptoms such as pain or the beginning of other foot deformities. Or he may just watch the child periodically or suggest physical therapy. I don't usually recommend orthotic devices until they are about 4 years old. That's when they start doing that heel/toe gait, putting the heel down, passing through the arch, and propulsing on the toes."
 
At our Toronto foot clinic, Academy Foot and Orthotic Clinics we pay special attention to children as they are our future.  We recommend to all our patients who are parents to have their children checked about 6 months after they start walking to insure that they have no postural or biomechanical deficiencies.  A foot specialist such as a Chiropodist is best suited to detect these deficiencies.  
 
If you or a loved one requires honest, competent advice, foot care or custom orthotics, please do not hesitate to contact us at www.torontofootspecialist.ca.
