Many people suffer from having flat feet.
Dr. Stuart Feldman having studied flat feet has a thorough understanding of the mechanics of the foot during locomotion and what needs to be done to control and or accommodate for these deformities. Other conditions associated with flat feet include: bunions, hammertoes, heel pain, arthritis, arch pain, knee pain, low back pain. Dr. Stuart Feldman always believes in a conservative approach. The best conservative approach is casting patients for orthotics. Dr. Stuart Feldman describes orthotics as eye glasses for the foot. Dr. Stuart Feldman’s orthotics are of the highest quality. If custom orthotics are not covered by your insurance and are too expensive to purchase out of pocket he will gladly dispense an extremely affordable over the counter insole.
Some causes of flat feet:
- Age and gravity. Many patients can’t believe it when I tell them they have flat feet. But just like everything else, the arches tend to fall too.
- Rheumatoid arthritis.
- Having weak muscles in the foot, ankles, and lower legs from aging or weight gain.
- Hereditary- if your parents have/had flat feet, there is a good chance that you will also.
