Instructor: Liesa Ritchie, PT, DPT, PCS, CKTP
Approx. 45 Minute course for parents
Parents & caregivers have lots of questions for pediatric physical therapists! In this webinar, Liesa explains flat feet, growing pains & toe walking!
“Poor balance, clumsiness, inactivity, weakness, stiffness & pain are very often caused by poor foot & ankle alignment. But, to improve alignment, we have to act sooner than you think! In this webinar, I’ll explain why flat feet are a problem, when it isn’t ‘just growing pains’ & how to know if toe walking is a problem. Plus, I’ll describe recommended characteristics for shoes at various ages, & the purpose & benefits of orthotics.”
