My Child Has Flat Feet – Should we do anything?

As a very young child, all feet will be ‘flat’ in appearance, but as the child approaches kinder and school age, the arches should lift as the muscles develop.

If you child complains of sore/tired legs or feet, if they often trip, if they have abnormal shoe wear, or if you have general concerns, an assessment is always a good idea. If intervention is required, it is easier to train a younger foot out of an abnormality easier than an older foot.
