Flat Feet with Marked Heel Eversion: Inverted Technique
This patient has pronated flat feet with marked eversion of the heels. The Inverted Orthotic Technique will be utilized to attempt to place the heel bisection line close to vertical. You can measure the angle, and use a 5 degree cast correction for 1 degree of foot correction ratio. If the line is over 7 degrees everted, I stop at 35 degrees to get the patient used to this amount of support. A good starting point.
