Flat feet can be a common condition where the arches of the feet appear to be flattened, causing the back of the heels to lean toward the center line. While this is normal in infants and toddlers whose feet are still developing, persistent flat feet can lead to pain and other issues in adulthood. If you or your child are experiencing any discomfort, it’s crucial to seek the professional evaluation of a chiropodist.
With her expertise, she can determine the underlying causes of your flat feet and develop a personalized treatment plan to alleviate your pain and improve your foot function.
So, what can you do if you have flat feet?
Here are some actionable steps you can take:
Wear supportive shoes: Opt for footwear with good arch support and cushioning. This helps provide stability and alleviate discomfort associated with flat feet. Supportive shoes promote better alignment and reduce strain on the affected areas, allowing you to move with greater ease and comfort.
