Do you have Pain due to your Flat Feet?

Firstly, what does the term flat feet mean? Simply stated, it means that the arches of your feet tend to be lower to the ground. It is more common than high arched feet and can also be called a pronated foot type, if it rolls in.

Pain can occur if your foot appears to become ‘flatter’ as you age, or cause issues due to the wear of your shoes or your gait patterns. For instance, due to malalignment of your feet and your legs you could experience pain in the knees, ankles, heels as well as plantar fasciitis.

Flat feet as you age could be due to:

  • Injury
  • Posterior Tibialis Tendonitis
  • Obesity
  • Age
  • Diabetes
  • Arthritis particularly Rheumatoid Arthritis
