Flatfeet- What Are The Options?

Flatfeet are very common and they can cause a lot of pain.  For both children and adults, custom orthotics can be very helpful to treat flatfeet and support the foot correctly to try to help decrease pain.  The Achilles tendon commonly becomes too tight with a flatfoot and stretching exercises to help lengthen the Achilles tendon can also be a helpful home therapy.

If flatfeet continue to be painful with custom orthotics and physical therapy, surgical options are also available.  We can correct flatfeet with both joint sparing procedures and also sometimes by fusing specific joints in the foot to also help arthritic pain.  If you are suffering from any foot or ankle pain, we are here to help!  Our expert podiatrists, Dr. Hinderland and Cameron use the latest techniques to get you back on your feet quickly.  Call us at 719-488-4664 today, so we can help you!
