My son is 10 years old. He has a leaning forward and duck footed gait, a duck footed stance, flat feet, pain when walking even short distances (arch inserts do not help), and sleeps in a pretzel position (legs criss-crossed with them laying on his chest)-- he also sits in this position most of the day. Any ideas on what is wrong? He has no other health issues besides Autism, Proprioceptive Disorder, and he's exceptionally tall for his age (5'4"). Thank you.
