Introduction to Flat Feet

The arch is referred to as the gap between the inner side of the foot and the ground, flat feet is a condition in which the foot doesn't have a normal arch. It may affect one foot or both feet. Patients that have a low arch or no arch commonly refer to their condition as flat feet or fallen arches. Fallen arches can cause problems such bunions, callus, corns, Achilles tendonitis, shin pain, severe heel pain, knee and ankle pain.

 

 

 

Causes & Treatment Options for Flat Feet

A symptom to watch for is abnormal shoe wear. People with flat feet typically have shoes that break down the inside wall of the heel counter and the outside of the forefoot area. A good test is to look at your foot print. A foot with a normal arch does not leave much of an arch impression since the arch is mostly off the ground. A flat foot person leaves more of an impression.

The primary cause of flat feet is over pronation. This can be controlled via insoles. People with flat feet or low arches who have been forced to live with back, knee and foot pain no longer have to put up with pain while standing, walking or running.
