Flatfoot Treatment: Orthotics or Surgery?
What is a flatfoot?

Pronation, or the inward motion of the ankle and outward motion of the rest of the bones in the foot, is normal to the foot. Commonly known as “flatfoot,” hyperpronation is characterized by excessive pronation and causes an imbalance in the distribution of body weight. Hyperpronation can be accompanied by pain and swelling in the foot or ankle and, in time, can cause further damage to joints, ligaments, and even the bones of the foot.

In most people, a slight flatfoot deformity is very common and usually absolutely harmless. Particularly in children, flat feet are not considered a pathological deformity.
