Orthotics for Flat Feet

April 23, 2018

One quarter of the US population has flat feet.

Normal arches fall over time causing flat feet. The posterior tibia tendon runs along the inside of the ankle from just above the joint to the arch. This tendon is the main arch support. Too much weight on the tendon can cause inflammation (called tendinitis) and tearing. Once the tendon is damaged, the arch loses support and can flatten, resulting in a fallen arch.

While orthotic insoles can’t fix flat feet, they can help realign your stance and body, relieving pain and discomfort.

Foot Doctors Orthotics Can Help.

Orthotic insoles provide comforting cushioning. Our orthotics are specifically designed to deliver arch support. Ours add a new level of stability and comfort not possible previously.

When dealing with flat feet, you need support in your heel and the ball of your foot, which is why you need an orthotic insert. Custom orthotics don’t just cushion the middle of your foot. Instead they provide orthotics from the ball of your foot to the heel. Custom orthotics provide full-length support, sometimes called full contact foot arch support. The deep heel cradle in our orthotics for flat feet feature maximum stability and motion control. Most importantly, our orthotics designed to correct flat feet offer metatarsal support that protects the ball of the foot.

Custom orthotics can and will help

Fitted custom orthotics effectively realign the foot and thus the lower extremities of the body. Custom orthotics can relieve pressure from the arch, of which reduces pain.  Only custom orthotics that conform precisely to your arch providing full contact have the capability to effectively support a flat foot.
