Burrard Vancouver Orthotics: Flat feet or Pes Planus

Flat feet or Pes Planus, the medical term for flat feet, is the most common cause of complaint from patients who suffer from foot, heel, knee shin and or lower back pain. Most often, the diagnosis of flat feet goes unchecked or overlooked.

The exact cause of flat feet is not very clear and sometimes it is unknown. The most common reason for having flat feet or fallen arches could be genetic factors, weak arches and ligament, injuries, arthritis, old age, or excessive weight and/or prolonged standing or poor footwear. Flat feet cause a biomechanical inefficiency in weight distribution and alignment and this can lead to a variety of symptoms including foot, ankle, knee, hip, and back pain.

Flat feet can be treated successfully by using custom foot orthotic inserts.
