By around age 5, a child should have normal arches in both feet. No heel product or arch support should be used in children under the age of five unless directed by your physician. Some of the more common foot injuries in children are ligament strain, stress fractures, heel bruises and plantar fasciitis. Heel pain is the leading foot complaint among children. In children over the age of 10 with flat feet, a firm arch support with cushioning should be considered. Dr. Todd's carries high quality pediatric foot care products including insoles, arch supports, heel pads and ankle braces designed specifically for children. DrTodds now also offers Pedors weEBors children's orthopedic shoes.
