Pain from Pes Planus

Vancouver Orthotics Foot Pain 2Has your doctor ever told you have flat feet? Have you ever wondered if your flat feet were the underlying cause of any leg, foot, or back pain you’ve been feeling? Flat feet, or Pes Planus, is a condition where the arch in your foot is lower than usual. This can occur because your arches did not fully develop during childhood, or from overpronation (when your foot rolls inward when standing as a means of shock absorption). Orthotic inserts can help alleviate painful symptoms caused by flat feet by giving you extra arch support, and ultimately a better shock absorber from the impact caused by daily walking, running, skipping, etc. If you think custom made orthotic inserts may help you with the discomfort you feel due to flat feet or overpronation, give us a call and we’d me more than happy to schedule a consultation with Dr. Horowitz!

Dr. Michael Horowitz offers a 5-Step process for relief & treatment of Flat Feet (over-pronation, pes planus) in Vancouver. 1) consultation & postural examination, 2) electronic gait scan analysis, 3D foot scan & biomechanical evaluation, 3) custom orthotic fitting, 4) orthotic dispensing, 5) follow up care. Call me at 604-737-3668 to discuss further or email Dr. Michael at to take action & solve your Flat Feet issues today.
