Kids Have an Alternative to Custom Orthotics


Our office continues to be open to all new and existing patients. We use hospital-grade sanitizers and are taking measures to ensure patients maintain social distancing by not having anyone wait in our reception room with others. If you prefer to wait in your car, just give us a call and we will call or text you when we are ready to bring you straight into a treatment room. Our entire staff is wearing masks and we encourage you to do the same.

For those patients who cannot or still wish not to visit the office, we are offering private video telemedicine visits. Simply call the office at 713-785-7881 and ask for an e-visit and we will be happy to get you set up for an immediate appointment. You can also request an appointment through our website.

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.
