Usually, there is a gap beneath the inner part of the foot when a person stands, as the arch raises off the ground slightly.
Flat feet only need treatment if-
*Some people appear to have a very low arch or no arch without ever experiencing problems.
The most common symptom of flat feet is pain in the feet. This can occur as a result of strained muscles and connecting ligaments.
Abnormal stresses on the knee and hip may result in pain in these joints. These stresses are likely if the ankles turn inward.
Major areas of pain-
*Flat feet can also cause an uneven distribution of body weight. This may result in shoes wearing down unevenly or more quickly than usual, especially on one side, which can lead to further injuries.
Another condition is tarsal coalition. Causes the bones of the foot to fuse together unusually, resulting in stiff and flat feet.
*Having feet that appear flat during early childhood does not mean that a person will always have flat feet.
However, a child might have flat feet as a result of incorrect bone development or another condition, such as spina bifida.
*Most qualified healthcare professionals can diagnose fallen arches by examining the feet and observing the individual as they stand and walk.
-The individual may need to stand on the tips of their toes to allow the doctor to examine the shape and function of each foot.e
3. Foot prints on a paper.
-Inked sole imprinted on a white sheet, to check the visibility of the arches.
*Podiatrist or physical therapist may recommend specific exercises to manage the symptoms of flat feet or prevent them from developing.
HEEL CORD STRETCHING
A tight Achilles tendon will encourage the foot to roll inward. The aim of heel cord stretching is to stretch the Achilles tendon and posterior calf muscles.
Perform it twice a day.
THE GOLF BALL ROLL
This exercise requires a chair and a golf ball.
*Some people with flat feet may automatically align their limbs in a way that prevents symptoms. People who are not experiencing symptoms do not usually require treatment.
*However, these products only treat the symptoms and do not provide long-lasting benefits.
