Flat Foot: When to consult?

  1. People with flat feet who do not experience pain or other symptoms, do not require a consultation with a doctor.
  2. However, anyone with the following symptoms should seek medical advice:
  • flat feet that have only developed recently.
  • pain in the feet, ankles, or lower limbs.
  • symptoms that do not improve with supportive, well-fitted shoes.
  • one or both feet becoming more flat
  • the feet feeling rigid, stiff, heavy, and unwieldy

*Most qualified healthcare professionals can diagnose fallen arches by examining the feet and observing the individual as they stand and walk.
