Flat Feet

We understand that flat feet can be a significant source of pain and discomfort for many individuals. Flat feet, or fallen arches, occur when the arch of the foot collapses or fails to develop properly, leading to an uneven distribution of weight across the foot.

There are several factors that can contribute to the development of flat feet, including genetics, injury, and underlying medical conditions such as arthritis or diabetes. Flat feet can also be a common occurrence in children, as their arches may not fully develop until later in childhood.

Fortunately, there are a variety of solutions available to help address flat feet and alleviate associated symptoms. At Optistride, we offer advanced diagnostic techniques to assess your foot mechanics, identify the root cause of your flat feet, and develop personalized treatment plans.

Depending on your specific needs and circumstances, we may recommend exercises, stretches, or strengthening programs to help improve the strength and flexibility of your feet and ankles. We may also recommend orthotic insoles or footwear modifications to provide additional support and cushioning for your feet, which can help improve your overall foot mechanics and reduce pain and discomfort.

Bespoke insoles can be particularly effective for individuals with flat feet, as they can be tailored to address the specific biomechanical issues contributing to your condition. Our team of biomechanics consultants has years of experience designing and fitting bespoke insoles for clients with a wide range of conditions, including flat feet.

In addition to treatment recommendations, we also provide guidance on what can make your condition worse and how to avoid exacerbating your symptoms. This may include advice on modifying your activities, improving your posture and form, and selecting appropriate footwear.

It’s also important to note that early intervention is key when it comes to flat feet in children. By identifying and addressing issues early on, we can help prevent future pain and discomfort, and promote healthy foot development.

At Optistride, we’re committed to helping individuals with flat feet lead active, fulfilling lives. With the right treatment and support, flat feet need not be an obstacle to participating in sports, walking, running, or any other activities you enjoy.
