Flat feet or hyperpronation  is a physical condition characterized by fallen arches while standing. When walking the arch collapses and it moves inward. This can disrupt the body's natural alignment and can cause foot, ankle, knee, hip, or back pain. Different types of custom-made insoles can be prescribed depending on the severity of the problem.

Our clinics warmly welcome children and constitute a great number of our clientele. Most common foot ailments include Flat Feet, Plantar Warts, and Ingrown Toenails. Your child should never suffer from foot pain. These problems are all easily resolved in the office of a certified Podiatrist.
