Flat feet

A flat foot is a structural deformity resulting in the lowering of the arch of the foot. This is usually due to hyperpronation. In layman’s terms we refer to this as fallen arches. A person with a flat foot or a highly arched foot that is fairly painful is in need of treatment. People with flat feet may have other foot related problems such as ankle, knee, hip or lower back pain.

Causes
The main causes of flat feet or fallen arches are, heredity, arthritis, trauma, musculoskeletal disorders.

The Extra-Osseous TaloTarsal Stabilization (EOTTS) with HyProCure training which is a minimally invasive foot surgery is offered at our June 20-22 New Orleans meeting. The video gives an overview of the procedure.
