Understanding Flexible Flat Foot:

Flexible flat foot is a common condition characterized by the flattening of the arches in the feet when standing. This can lead to overpronation, where the feet roll inward excessively during walking or running. While children and adults can both experience flexible flat foot, the signs and symptoms may vary.

Signs and Symptoms:

For Children:

  • Pain or Discomfort: Complaints of foot, ankle and knee pain, especially after physical activity.
  • Tired Feet: Easily fatigued during play, exercise and athletic activities.
  • Awkward Walking: Noticeable changes in walking patterns, such as fleet slapping the ground and toeing out.
  • Trips and Falls: Increased frequency of stumbling or falling.

For Adults:

  • Arch Pain: Discomfort or pain in the arches, heels, or along the outer edge of the foot, increased with athletic and exercise activity.
  • Ankle Discomfort: Persistent soreness in the ankle, often accompanied by swelling.
  • Knee, Hip, or Back Pain: Overpronation can contribute to misalignment and discomfort in more proximal joints.
  • Limited Mobility: Decreased ability to perform physical activities due to discomfort.

HyProCure: A Revolutionary Solution:

We're proud to offer the HyProCure implant, a cutting-edge solution that addresses the root causes of  misalignment of the feet (flexible flat foot) and overpronation. This minimally invasive procedure involves the insertion of the HyProCure implant into the naturally occurring space between the ankle and heel bones. This implant restores proper alignment and stability, effectively reducing overpronation and alleviating associated discomfort.

The Benefits:

  • Misalignment Correction: HyProCure provides long-lasting correction, enhancing foot function for years to come.
  • Minimally Invasive: The procedure involves a small incision and typically requires only a short recovery period.
  • Return to Activity: Most individuals will experience a significant improvement in their ability to be involved in normal daily activities and exercise/athletic activities. 

Compassionate Care, Exceptional Results:

At Grand Rapids Podiatry, we take pride in our individualized approach to patient care. We understand that each patient's needs are unique, and we're committed to providing personalized treatment plans that cater to your specific circumstances. Dr. Solon and our entire staff is dedicated to provide you with exceptional service and care.  Our goal is to exceed your expectations starting with your initial evaluation and continuing with each visit you have for yourself and family members going forward.

My son was in middle school and could not walk home, which is less than half a mile without tears, he had severe foot pain.  I contacted Dr. Solon, who opened his office on a Sunday to evaluate him. My son was flat footed and his feet were pronated. Dr. Solon performed HyProCure surgery on both of my sons feet and he is now playing D1 Lacrosse for the University of Detroit/Mercy and has no foot pain whatsoever. Thank you Dr. Solon and staff for everything you did for our family and making our sons dream of playing D1 College Lacrosse come true!

HyProCure exceeded our expectations. Amazing results with such a simple procedure. My son’s pain is gone and his physical activity is much improved. Inevitable degenerative arthritic changes of the feet and leg pain have been avoided. So grateful for Dr. Solon diagnosing Jack’s condition and offering this incredible procedure!!
