hi to all.just woundered if anyone could give some advice?brandon went to see the doctor last week and we were told he has flat feet and needs to see a specialist.the souls of his feet have no arch they are completely flat.i always have trouble buying shoes because his instep is so high.and i just would like to know if anyone ever heard of this before?thanx
cory has this problem and wears pedro boots which you get from your physio but wot i also got so cory didnt just have to wear the boots were the inner soles on there own so i could put them in other shoes.....they have a raised part in them to form the arch that should be there......hope this helps a little

hi there charlie has the same problem he has been given peidro boots with the removable insteps the same as cory,does brandon have peidro boots ? you could speak to physio for advice love shell,charlie and jasmin xxxxxxxxx
thanx.but he not got a physio at the moment.waiting for appointment to come through.have heard about the special soles.when they are first used does it cause discomfort? as Brandon is 5 now.he never has had anything other than just trainers or shoes and think they might make him uncomfortable would be grateful if anyone knows

hi brandy i'm not really sure cos charlie never moans and he cant really speak ,the insteps do make his boots quite bulky and wide so we cant fasten his laces up tight enough so sometimes they come flying off i dont even think they have made any difference, he still walks and stands the same and we dont think his feet have changed at all. i cant believe you haven't had a physio,charlie had one from birth!,is it different in different areas? anyway hope things work out well for brandon and you get things sorted soon lots of love shell,charlie and jasmin xxxxxxx
im shocked that hasnt had physio as well cory had it near enough from birth. as with the soles and boots ...they say only to put them on for a short while at a time at first...cory only wears his for skool then he has the freedom to wiggle his toes when he gets home...lol
That is a bit shocking that you haven't got a physio - i thought it was standard, Even Caleb has a physio - and he doesn't need one!! She just likes to check him and say how he doesn't need her! Get your Dr to sort it out!!
i would check with you child devlopment clinic just in case he fell through the net. This happened to a friend of mine her son fell through the net in relation to the special needs nursery advisor calling with them. He is two next week and his first appointment will be the 31st Oct.
thanks everyone for all your advice.as Brandon is 5 he has now been referred to the community doctor for special needs and no longer is seen at the cdc.i have spoken to her about his feet and she has referred him to physio so am now awaiting an appointment.thanks again and will let you know what happens.
