Flat Foot Correction

Flat feet can throw the entire body out of alignment and eventually lead to other more painful problems. Reconstructive surgery using pins and screws used to be the only solution for flat feet. But now, our implantable flat foot stents have been proven to reduce or even eliminate the symptoms of flat feet. In as little as 10-minutes, this safe, minimally-invasive procedure will better support the arch of your foot and keep the rest of your body in proper alignment.

*Feet for Life is ranked as one of the most experienced Flat Foot Stent Surgeons in the world

Heel Pain Solutions

Over 95% of all heel pain is diagnosed as Plantar Fasciitis or inflammation of the ligament that runs from the heel to the ball of your foot and helps support your arch. Using advanced ultrasound imaging and shock wave therapy, we’re able to pinpoint the source of heel pain and tenderize the ligament. Recent studies show that 80% of patients with chronic plantar fasciitis saw successful outcomes with just one ESWT treatment.

  • Non-surgical / Non-invasive
  • Short 30-minute treatment
  • Walk immediately after treatment
