Which orthotics do you recommend for my 4-year-old son with flat feet and pronation?
Asked 3 years ago
He was referred to a physiotherapist when he was toe walking and again when he turned 3 for fallen arches. I have been told to just watch his feet that it will fix itself, but I find that hard to believe. All his shoes are bent to the side because of this problem. Any advice will be very appreciated, and I will be very grateful if I can get recommendations of what orthotics to buy in the UK.

The first step would be to take you son to see a podiatrist to get a second opinion on the severity of the condition. It is in fact true that in most cases no surgery or medical intervention is necessary as the arch profile of the foot can develop normally as the child grows up.
