Pes planovalgus – our treatment

When choosing the correct treatment of pes planovalgus in your child, the most important factors are the severity of the malposition and the stress-related pain. In most cases, surgical treatment is not necessary. Targeted foot exercises to strengthen the foot muscles and comfortable, flexible shoes with insoles can achieve good results for a flat foot or pes valgus.

In rare cases, if conservative treatment has not been successful or your child complains of severe pain more often, surgery may be necessary to correct the pes valgus or flat foot. Our experienced paediatric orthopaedis will discuss all of the options for conservative or surgical treatment with you. Our primary goal is to provide your child with the best possible care and to make the treatment as pleasant as possible.
