PES PLANUS; aka FLAT FEET, the PRONATED FOOT:
Low arched, or flat feet, are a common type of foot structure. Most flat feet are pronated which is a foot in poor functional position. Close examination of this type of foot in a weight-bearing position shows the following:
- Turning out of the heel bone away from the centre of the body
- Inward rotation of the leg
- Bulging of the inner aspect of the ankle
- Shifting of the forefoot outward from the heel
Treatment starts with a proper evaluation of the underlying cause of the conditions to diagnose the appropriate correction. Functional Custom Foot Orthotics to compensate for mechanical faults, will allow your feet to function with improved efficiency. Orthotics relieve stress from compromised joints, ligaments and muscles, diminishing deforming forces acting on the foot.
