Flat Foot / Pes Planus Treatment

Flatfoot / Pes Planus

Flat foot deformity usually starts in middle age and you can see flattening of the arch. As the deformity progresses, it becomes stiffer and arthritis can sometimes develop. As the condition progresses and becomes more severe, arthritis may also develop in later stages along with tendon damage or even rupture. Plenty of treatment options are available for flatfeet including orthotics, bracing, physical therapy and surgery is recommended only in significant cases where simple measures have not helped.
