Hi, all of us have flat feet. I have permanent othotics in my sneakers and my daughters have temporary ones since they are still growing. My oldest was just diagnosed with Seavers Disease. Can you give me any info on this? I know basically what it is and they tell me that my daughters growth spurt has caused it. She went from being extremely active and happy to in a lot of pain and very upset quickly. My youngest daughter was born with 2 diseases: Macrocephally and Hypophosphatasia. The first deals with her brain and learning disabilities. The other one is a bone disease. As of lately, they are not sure about the bone disease any more because she is no longer following the tendencies of that disease. So, they no longer know which type of bone disease she now has. Her bones do not grow right, her stature is behind her chronological age by 2 years(19 months actually). Some of her bones grow deformed a bit, some bend a little while they grow. Recently her right leg has started turning out away from her body. Our foot doctor a while ago suggested night braces for her, we took time to think about it and got 2nd opinions on it. When we went back, he said it was too late to put her in braces now. Braces won't help her now cause we waited too long. She is only 9 years old, she still has a lot of growing to do. Her body is the size of a 7 year old. She has a lot of pain in her feet, tingling sensations also and our foot doctor is basically telling us it is something we have to learn to live with--nothing can be done. Can you give any ideas or suggestions? Thank you for your time.
