Kinetic chain: The body is a kinetic chain and needs to be evaluated properly. Seek out a sports podiatrist who is comfortable treating children.

Depends: On the severity of the deformity, as well as whether it is flexible or rigid. If it is a flexible deformity, a good pair of orthotics can help to maintain better alignment and help with pain and fatigue. For severe deformities, surgical options should be considered. Arthroeresis is usually the option, as the patient is not skeletally mature enough for major reconstruction.
