Flat feet—also known as “fallen arches”—can come with varying degrees of discomfort. If you’re dealing with this issue, the talented team at Synergy Foot and Ankle can help you find relief and enjoy a restored sense of functionality.
Treating Your Flat Feet
Treatment for flat feet is best when implemented earlier in life, which is why it’s important to avoid hesitation if you think you might have this issue. Restoring your proper biomechanical alignment as early as possible can reduce the chances of progression of the deformity or chronic pain. If you think you may have flat feet, reach out to us as soon as possible and set up your consultation so you can know for sure.
We tend to start with conservative treatment first, with modalities like custom orthotics or braces that can help reposition your feet and alleviate some of the problems presented by the issue. Physical therapy can be another method by which we address your flat feet, as well. If these conservative approaches don’t seem to be working, however, it may become necessary to explore the potential for surgical correction.
