Flat Foot Deformity

This condition can be congenital or acquired and typically results in hyperpronation of the subtalar joint in the foot. A variety of other causes occur as well. Gradually, the medial arch collapses and the foot becomes progressively flatter. As the deformity continues, the shape of the foot is drastically altered and the bones, joints and soft tissue structures deteriorate. If caught early in life, this can be corrected with relatively simple surgical procedures such as a subtalar joint implant. Later in life, this becomes more difficult and more extensive surgery may be required. Conservative care typically consists of high quality custom foot orthotics.
