FLAT FOOT ISSUES

FLAT FOOT ISSUES

The posterior tibial tendon or PTT is important for the structure of the foot and helps it to properly function while walking. When you experience a dysfunction in the PTT, there are changes to the tendon that impair its ability to support the arch, resulting in flat feet.

 

Posterior tibial tendon dysfunction (PTTD) is often called “adult acquired flatfoot” and usually occurs in one foot, although it can occur in both feet in some cases. If left untreated, the condition can worsen and can lead to serious pain. 

 

This injury is common for people that run, walk or hike often. If treated early enough, the issues related to flat footedness can be resolved without surgery. 

 

Whether you require surgery or need physical therapy for flat feet, we are standing by to assist. We look forward to working with you soon and ask that you reach out at your earliest convenience!
