Our feet are essential to daily movement. They keep us upright and help us walk, run, and exercise. They are essential to maintaining good posture and keeping our balance. That’s why it is so important to take care of our feet and bodies, especially if you think you may have flat feet or are concerned that you have flat feet symptoms leading to causing pain or discomfort.
Fortunately, we can help you determine if you have flat feet and address any flat feet pain you may be experiencing.
What Are Flat Feet?
Stand up and put your feet flat on the ground if you are able. Do you notice space between the floor and your feet or do the entire soles of your feet touch the floor?
Well, if the soles on the inside of your feet touch the floor when you stand up, you likely have flat feet.
A flat foot or flat feet is not as uncommon as it may seem. According to Mayo Clinic, infants and toddlers have flat feet because the arch in the foot has yet to develop. But some people never develop arches, and those who don’t, do not always have pain or discomfort due to flat feet. Fallen arches or flat feet can also occur over time, due to wear and tear on the tendon that runs along the inside of the ankle.
