The treatment of adult acquired flatfoot deformity should be individualized in each case, depending on thecauses, symptoms, severity of deformity, and flexibility of the deformity. Therefore, it is mandatory for physicians to beacquainted with the basic pathomechanics of flatfoot deformity as well as the diagnostic procedures and treatmentsfor each condition.
