My child has flat feet. Does it need to be treated?
There are many people with flat feet who never have a problem with their feet. If there is a family history of flat feet with family members needing surgery or having bunions, hammertoes or other foot condition, then yes, your child should be treated. This does not mean surgery, rather, a good insert recommended by their podiatrist. The best thing to do is to have your child’s foot examined, then evaluate the options.
