Children’s orthotics are designed to support and correct developmental concerns. As your child grows and their condition changes, their orthotic will need to be adapted as well. Orthotics can help realign the feet, ankles, legs, knees, and hips and come in many different types. The process begins with an accurate diagnosis of your child’s condition and an appropriate treatment plan.
The team of experts at Foot and Ankle Specialists of Illinois offers pediatric services including a wide range of child orthotics. Ensuring that your child develops in a healthy way requires an experienced team that fully understands pediatric and toddler orthotics. At FASI, we are proud of the incredible results we have provided to children with early development foot and ankle conditions, giving them the foundation to live a healthier, more active life!

Orthotic Solutions for Children
In the same way that each condition is unique, so too is the orthotic needed to treat it! The shape and function of the orthotic will directly reflect your child’s condition and the corrective measures that are needed.
Schedule a consultation with Dr. Hyderi at the Foot and Ankle Specialists of Illinois to get an official diagnosis and opinion on your child’s condition. At that point, we can present you with an initial treatment plan and set of expectations. If you notice your child is developing foot conditions or misalignments, the best course of action is to seek out professional help as early as possible!
