A recent paper by Margaret Evans, PhD has been discussed here on this site several times and we summarized it in one of our eJouranl Club Newsletters.  The paper reviews the best studies currently available on treatment of pediatric flatfoot and lays out a clinical pathway with recommendations on treatment. The most controversial portion of her recommendations had to do with those children with asymptomatic flexible flatfoot. Her paper recommended a “monitor” approach to these children. But some practitioners are concerned that these underlying structural abnormalities, if left untreated, may lead to serious consequences later in life.

The current issue of Lower Extremity Review has a featured article on this controversy. We recommend all podiatrists who treat children read this article.

ProLab has a reputation as the country’s premier foot orthotic lab for both custom and prefabricated children’s orthoses. Our medical consultants are all experienced with treatment of the pediatric patient and familiar with the literature regarding orthotic therapy for kids. ProLab clients are encouraged to contact a medical consultant if you have questions regarding your pediatric patients.
