Kids Have an Alternative to Custom Orthotics
My colleague Dr. Louis DeCaro discusses Little Steps Orthotics. They are a high-quality pre-fabricated orthotic which provides support to kids with flat feet. By controlling the angle of the heel bone, these orthotics provide greater stability to the foot for children who need this support.
While many kids would benefit from a custom orthotic, the cost is sometimes prohibitive if insurance does not cover the devices. Because of a child's growth, replacing the device also becomes problematic. The Little Steps orthotics provides an excellent solution: A fantastic device with superior control, but with a much more reasonable investment.
