Flat Feet Treatment: Supporting Your Foundation at Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute

Excellent Care, Friendly Staff & Best Treatment Plans

Understanding Flat Feet

Flat feet, or fallen arches, are a common condition where the arches on the inside of your feet are flattened, allowing the entire sole to touch the floor when you stand up. This condition can lead to discomfort and other foot problems. At Central Florida Foot & Ankle Institute, we offer specialized treatment to alleviate the symptoms associated with flat feet and improve your overall foot health.

Causes and Symptoms of Flat Feet

Flat feet can occur when the arches don't develop during childhood, or they can develop over time due to aging, injuries, or conditions like rheumatoid arthritis. Common symptoms include:

  • Pain in the foot, ankle, or lower leg
  • Arch or heel pain after standing or walking
  • Swelling along the inside of the ankle
  • Altered foot alignment

Our Approach to Flat Feet Treatment

Our treatment focuses on relieving pain and restoring function, which can include:

  • Custom Orthotics: Specially designed insoles to support the arches and redistribute pressure.
  • Physical Therapy: Exercises to strengthen foot, ankle, and lower leg muscles.
  • Supportive Footwear Recommendations: Guidance on selecting shoes that provide proper support.
  • Anti-Inflammatory Medication: For relief from pain and swelling.
  • Bracing or Casting: In severe cases, to provide extra support.

Advanced Treatment Options

In cases where conservative treatments are not effective, surgical options may be considered, such as:

  • Reconstructive Surgery: To correct the structure of the foot.
  • Tendon Transfer: To balance the pulling forces on the arch.
  • Osteotomy: Cutting and realigning bones to correct flat feet.
