Flat feet are known as feet that lack the medial longitudinal arch. This misaligns the biomechanics of the foot which can cause pain throughout the foot and leg, and even in the lower back and shoulder. This is quite common and can have no symptoms but also be a great cause of pain.

If you have flat feet then you may have trouble taking part in sports activities or running etc. Therefore we want to be able to help you return your active lifestyle through our tailored treatment plans.
