Gold Coast children orthotics differ from normal orthotics. Your child’s foot is very different to yours as they are extremely flexible and the bones are soft. While your child’s feet are still growing, they are extremely susceptible to injuries. Womb position, improper footwear, hereditary influences, and poor development all can cause issues in your child’s feet. Unfortunately, children can’t always explain what they’re feeling other than saying it hurts. It is therefore vital for parents to pay close attention to the development of their feet. Doctors argue that most foot problems and pains in adulthood stem from ill-fitting shoes or poor foot experiences during childhood. It is important to remember that the foot is NOT a separate entity, but an integral body part that supports the entire skeletal structure.
