Our expert says:
Flat feet could either be functional or structural in origin. Most babies are born with a fatty pad along the medial longitudinal arch (inside arch of the foot) I would recommend that you consult with a podiatrist with a special interest in paediatrics or consult with a physiotherapist that has a special interest in children and have done a NDT (neuro developmental therapy) course. www.podiatrist.co.za 0861 100 249 or www,physiosa.org.za
