Treatment

There are many ways to treat symptoms associated with this foot type. Stopping or cutting back on the activities that cause pain and avoid prolonged standing or walking. It is important to also wear the proper shoes that not only are appropriate for the activity you are engaging in, but also a shoe that supports the arches. Orthotic devices can also be used in conjunction with your shoes to support the arches and correct any biomechanical deformity. Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory can also be used to help reduce any pain associated with this condition. Physical therapy as well as gait training is also a treatment option for pain associated with any conditions associated with this foot type. In some patients that don't respond to any conservative treatments and are still in discomfort surgery may be necessary. There are many surgical options available to correct conditions associated with a flexible flatfoot. These procedures are selected based on a number of factors by your podiatric surgeon that include severity of deformity, age, x-ray findings, biomechanical examination, activity level, etc.
