Flat Feet or Fallen Arches

Condition Explained

You have flatfeet when the arch on the inside of your feet is flattened, allowing the entire sole of your foot to touch the floor when you stand up.
A common, flatfeet may occur when the arches don’t develop during childhood. In other cases, flatfeet may develop after an injury or from the simple wear-and-tear stresses of age.
Flatfeet can contribute to problems in your ankles and knees because the condition can alter optimal alignment of your legs. Flat feet also cause over pronation, a term used to describe an excessive roll inward of the foot whilst walking or running. This causes strain and pressure to be taken by muscles and tissues further up the body which leads to tightness and ultimately can increase the risk of injury and pain.

Treatment

Custom designed orthotics which are molded to the contours of your feet, act by supporting and optimizing the alignment of your feet thereby reducing strain, pressure and impact shock from the feet upwards throughout the body which can alleviate pain and prevent and minimize further damage.
