Foot deformation on children and teenagers: cavo foot and flat foot.
There are many foot problems in children and teenagers that can affect them on a daily basis. Some of which are caused by the way they walk or how they support on their feet. Two of the most common anomalies are cavo foot and flat foot.
The first one is characterised for having a bigger arch on the foot’s sole, which causes severe pain and many limitations for children if it is not dealt with properly on time. The other one is flat foot, which is one of the most common anomalies. To try and correct this deformity, it is advisable the use of insoles or some other type of physiotherapy, but in some critical causes, the treatment required to fix it is surgery.
