Program Helps Keep Kids Supported as They Grow; Available for the Ultra Young Soles® for ages 5-12
ROANOKE, VIRGINIA—July 22, 2016—Once parents fitted their children’s feet with custom-made functional orthotics, the inevitable is bound to happen... They may outgrow their orthotics in less than a year! That’s why Foot Levelers introduced has its innovative Posture Protect Program: patients between the ages of 5 and 18 get $10 off each new pair of orthotics, as foot size increases by 1.5 sizes. A new scan is required to ensure the perfect fit.
During a child’s growth, the normal development of the pelvis and the spine will suffer if there is a foot imbalance. Research shows a budding athlete’s skill level—even running at recess—can be significantly affected. Later on, foot problems can interfere with adolescent or adult spinal function, which can result in poor biomechanics and accelerated degenerative changes in the knees, hips and spine. The Posture Protect Program is the perfect compliment to Foot Levelers’ custom-made orthotics for youth: the Ultra Young Soles® for ages 5-12. Ultra Young Soles was developed specifically to address these challenges and to protect the growing body.
Ultra Young Soles work in conjunction with a doctor’s treatments to help keep a child’s body healthy and balanced. When the spine and pelvis are properly supported and balanced, children are more likely to develop a better, healthier posture as they grow into adulthood. Like all Foot Levelers custom-made functional orthotics, Ultra Young Soles is created using 3D scanning technology or Casting Kits so that any foot problems can be observed and measured in detail by Foot Levelers’ experienced technicians.
