Pes Planus is latin for flat feet or fallen arch, and refers to an abnormally flattened or spread out arch. The joints of the feet are weight bearing and can take a lot of abuse over the years. Faulty biomechanics from the feet can have a destructive effect on all weight bearing joints. This is where custom orthotic inserts play a role in preventing breakdown and treating flat feet.
