Flat feet, also known as fallen arches or pes planus, can lead to discomfort and various foot-related issues. At Wigley Feet, our experienced podiatrists are dedicated to providing effective treatments that address the challenges posed by flat feet and help you find relief.
Understanding Flat Feet: Flat feet occur when the arches of the feet are either partially or completely collapsed, causing the entire sole of the foot to come into contact with the ground. This condition can be present from birth or develop over time due to factors such as genetics, injury, or muscle weaknesses.
Our Approach to Treatment: At Wigley Feet, we recognize that flat feet can impact your quality of life and overall foot health. Our comprehensive approach to flat feet treatment involves the following steps:
Comprehensive Assessment: Our skilled podiatrists will conduct a thorough examination of your feet to assess the extent of your flat feet condition and any related symptoms. This assessment guides us in creating a personalized treatment plan.
Custom Orthotics: Tailored orthotic inserts can provide the necessary arch support and alignment that flat feet lack. Our podiatrists will create custom orthotics designed to fit your feet and address your specific needs, helping to alleviate discomfort and promote better foot function.
Footwear Recommendations: Wearing appropriate footwear is crucial for managing flat feet. Our experts will recommend footwear that provides proper arch support and cushioning to reduce strain on the feet and improve comfort.
Stretching and Strengthening Exercises: Our podiatrists may recommend specific stretching and strengthening exercises to help improve muscle strength and flexibility in the feet and lower legs. These exercises can contribute to better arch support and overall foot function.
Physical Therapy: If needed, our team collaborates with skilled physical therapists to provide comprehensive rehabilitation plans that target the underlying causes of flat feet and help you achieve better foot health.
Surgical Consideration: In cases of severe flat feet that do not respond to conservative treatments, surgical intervention may be considered. Our experienced podiatrists can discuss surgical options, potential benefits, and the recovery process.
Embrace Better Foot Health: At Wigley Feet, our priority is to help you find relief from the discomfort of flat feet and improve your overall foot health. Our individualized treatment plans are designed to address your specific needs and concerns, promoting better arch support and overall functionality.
