Children & Orthotics

Pain in a child’s foot is never normal. Any pain that lasts more than a few days, or that is severe enough to limit the child’s walking, should be evaluated immediately. Paying special attention to the concerns that you or your child has with their feet or legs is vital to their overall health, activity, and behaviour.

The Chiropodist will perform a thorough examination of your children’s feet and will provide you with advice regarding the proper care and treatment for your child by preventing and correcting problems that could potentially be bothersome and painful into adulthood.

    Kids are constantly growing, and so are their feet. At Azilda Family Foot Care, we understand that children sometimes outgrow their orthotics faster than your insurance coverage renews. When a child’s foot grows more than two shoe sizes, their custom orthotic will no longer fit their foot properly. This can get expensive, which is why we have a great program for children up to 16 years of age. After the initial purchase of orthotics at regular cost, a second and third pair of orthotics are discounted in an effort to help with the affordability as they grow.
