Flat Feet

Flat feet (Pes Planus) is a term used to describe excessive “rolling in” or pronation of the feet either while standing or in motion.

This “rolling in” is a normal function of the foot as it allows us to absorb shock and walk on uneven terrain. However, too much of this can cause problems in the long-term.

Symptoms of Flat Feet include:

  1. Shin splints
  2. Ankle Pain
  3. Knee Pain
  4. Plantar Fasciitis
  5. Bunions


A Biomechanical Assessment is performed to determine the causes of the Flat Feet and subsequent effects on the body. Treatment may involve exercise prescription, stretching, orthotics, footwear modification or referral to a surgeon. It is best to attempt conservative treatment first.
