Orthotics For Children 01

It's no secret that children spend a significant amount of time on their feet. Whether they're running around the backyard, playing with friends at school, or competing in sports, their young feet must support them through it all. This constant activity puts a lot of strain on developing feet, which is where Footlogics comes in.

For over 15 years, we are passionate about providing the support and care children need to grow up happy, healthy, and active. Our orthotics for children are designed to prevent eventual foot, ankle, and leg issues that could keep them off their feet.

Why Do Kids Need Orthotics?

As children's feet continue to develop, they can become susceptible to various arch problems. One of the most common issues is flat feet, where the arches of the feet fail to properly form. This can lead to other problems like heel pain, also known as Sever's disease, and in-toeing, where the feet turn inward.

These conditions not only cause discomfort but can also impact a child's balance and overall mobility. Children's orthotics from Footlogics help address these problems by providing the necessary support, alignment, and pain relief to ensure their feet grow strong and healthy. With the right kids' orthotics, they can stay active and avoid future complications down the line.

Signs That Your Kid Needs Foot Support

There are a variety of reasons why children might require orthotics. One of the most common podiatric complaints in kids is heel pain, also known as Calcaneal Apophysitis or "Sever's Disease". While this condition can be quite uncomfortable, it is often a symptom of a deeper issue developing in the child's feet.

Some common signs of heel pain include:

  • - Walking on their toes
  • - Limping
  • - Pain in the bottom or back of the heel
  • - Difficulty participating in their usual sports and activities

Another frequent problem is overpronation, where the child's feet roll inwards and the arches fall(flat feet). This can contribute to or worsen heel pain.Unsupported or misaligned feet can also lead to knee pain, like Osgood-Schlatter Disease. This shows how the condition of the feet can impact overall health and mobility.

While resting from activities can help reduce knee pain, properly fitted insoles for kids can provide long-term relief and support as the child's feet continue to develop.

Orthotics For Children


What age should kids get orthotics?

There is no single age when all kids should get orthotics, as the need can vary depending on the child's specific foot and footwear needs. Generally, many children can benefit from orthotics as young as 5-7 years old, especially if they have noticeable foot issues like flat feet or heel pain.

However, an assessment by a podiatrist or paediatric foot specialist is recommended to determine if and when orthotics may be appropriate for an individual child.

What are orthotics for kids?

Orthotics for kids are custom-made or premade inserts that fit inside their shoes. They help support and align the feet, address foot problems, and facilitate proper foot development. Common reasons kids use orthotics include flat feet, heel pain, arch issues, and improving sports performance.

How long do kids need to wear orthotics?

The length of time depends on the child’s specific needs and condition for his/her feet. The duration of wearing orthotics can vary depending on the severity of the issue, but generally:

  • For temporary foot/gait issues: Often just for 6 months to 2 years, until the problem is resolved.
  • For ongoing conditions: Kids may need to wear orthotics long-term, potentially until their feet are fully developed in the late teens.
  • For sports/activities: Orthotics may be worn just during certain activities, as needed.
