Diagnosis of pediatric flat foot
Foot & ankle specialists
To diagnose flat feet, the foot and ankle specialist examines the foot and notes its shape when the child stands and sits. The doctor also watches how the child walks and assesses the foot's range of motion. Because flat feet are sometimes related to leg problems, the doctor also examines the knee and hip.
X-rays are usually done to determine the severity of the deformation. Additional diagnostic imaging studies and other tests are sometimes ordered.
