Why do my child's ankles roll in?

Have you noticed that your child shies away from physical activities or complains of foot pain after walking a lot? If you take a close look at your child standing, you may notice there is no arch.  Flat feet are a fairly common problem and the ankles appear to roll in.  This problem will not resolve by itself and can lead to foot pain, ankle pain, and knee pain later in life.  Early treatment is critical in the still developing bones of children.
