Do My Children Need Arch Support?
Parents always want to ensure the health and well-being of their children. So, it is natural that if
your child has flat feet, you would want to find out if he needs Arch Support or not. However,
before you start worrying about the flat feet of your child, you need to find out if it is really a
problem or not. Most of the children are born with feet which appear flat with no visible arch.
There is no need to worry, though. The arch develops as the child grows up and might even take
until pre-puberty to fully appear.
When Does Your Child Need Arch Support?
While flat feet aren’t much of an issue when the child is young, there are risk factors which you
need to monitor since an early age. For instance, if anyone in your family has a history of flat
feet then there is a chance that the child might inherit it. Moreover, if the child starts complaining
about Leg Pain or tiring muscles then it is also an indication that there is something wrong with
the child’s feet. Another risk factor is the inflexibility of the foot. If the child’s foot isn’t flexible
and remains stiff all the time, then you should really consult your doctor and start discussing
about getting him arch supports.
How Can Arch Supports Help
Arch Support can help provide the balance that the foot needs when walking and running for
people with flat feet. If a child starts using the arch support from an early age, there is a chance
that they might develop their foot arches and won’t have to deal with this issue for long.
Moreover, the arch supports can go a long way in reducing the pain felt by the child because of
the flatness of his feet. They can also ensure that the child doesn’t develop any other foot issues
because of his flat feet.
