You have flat feet when the arch on the inside of your feet is flattened, allowing your entire foot to touch the floor when you stand up. Flat feet is a common problem and sometimes painless, but even when its painless that does not mean that it is not doing harm to your whole body. Some of the common symptoms and deformities caused by flat feet are bunions, ankle pain, heel pain, knee pain and lower back pain.
We can treat flat feet by orthotics or by surgery. Orthotics can help alleviate the pain by holding your arch in a corrected position, but it does not correct the deformity. The only way to correct the deformity is by surgery, if you qualify for the procedure. At Foot & Ankle Concepts our surgeons are experts in this life changing procedure. On your visit we will do a comprehensive biomechanical examination to see if you qualify for the procedure.
