Flat Feet/Fallen Arches (Pes Planus)
A true flat foot is rare. Generally, a flat footed person is only suffering from a functional flat foot caused by excess pronation. Excess Pronation causes the foot’s arch to collapse & elongate giving the appearance of a flat foot. A functional flat foot is quite common and generally exhibits symptoms ranging from sore/tired feet to general leg fatigue and body aches. Orthotics are designed to control excess pronation (the common cause of functional flat feet), thereby restoring the foot’s arch to normal.
