Scoliosis and Flat Foot

In patients with scoliosis with a relatively longer level and curvature in the lumbar region, the condition called ankle valgus, where the inner part of the sole of the foot touches the ground (in a sense pes planus = flat feet) is frequently encountered. As part of the scoliosis treatment at Istanbul Scoliosis School, we make computer-assisted personalized insoles for these patients by performing gait analysis. With the use of insoles, a pause and some regression of scoliosis occurs.
