Re: children's flat feet

My son is only 4, and our pediatrician refered us to a specialist who charges us 200.00 for inserts. He is said to have flat feet, but he does have an arch. He just walks on the inside of his feet, with the soles of his feet sticking out. Our doctor said that she never seen a child this young have it. Is this common that you know of? Are there any other options for us (cost is a factor when you have 6 kids) Also, can our other children have this? Any info would be great.
