Comments (0)

There are lots of family events going on around here -- like free outdoor movies at O’Brian Park! On Aug. 5, you can spread a blanket and take in Zootopia starting at dusk. Don’t forget summer Movies for a Buck in nearby theaters as well. Know something else that’s kid-friendly? Custom orthotics! Yep, believe it or not, orthotics can help with kids’ foot conditions, too!

Orthotics for Kids

After all, grownups aren’t the only ones with ingrown toenails, bunions, or flat feet. These are all problems that can also occur in children’s feet, and when they do (just as with adults), custom orthotics can help!

Whether a faulty foot structure is causing an abnormal gait and achy arches, or growth spurts are causing tendons to pull too tight and cause hurting heels, custom orthotics for kids can be designed to address each individual need. They can correct alignment, take pressure off painful areas, distribute weight evenly, slow progression of problems, and provide added cushion and support where your child’s feet need it most! In short, children’s foot conditions of all kinds can be treated with orthotics.

So, if kids are complaining of foot pain, seem to be limping, or are not all that excited about putting on their shoes and heading out for some summer fun, come see us so we can assess the problem and determine if custom orthotics can help. We can create the perfect pair to ease your little one’s pain, then you can all get back to your family time (and your movie), in practically no time at all!

Make an appointment by dialing (303) 805-5156 or by using our online contact form.

Now, if you could please pass the popcorn.
