Q
What is Pes Planus?

A

Another name for Pes Planus is flat foot.  It is a condition where the longitudinal arch in the foot, which runs lengthwise along the sole of the foot, has not developed normally and is lowered or flattened out.  Children as well as adults may be flat-footed.  Treatment typically includes custom orthotics.  Surgery is sometimes needed.
