Home : Conditions : Flat Feet
The arch of your foot is its main supportive structure. If this arch loses strength, the bony framework begins to collapse, causing your foot to flatten. Flat feet can lead to problems with your ankles, knees, hips, or lower back.
The excess strain from flat feet can cause other foot problems, such as hammertoes, bunions, heel spurs, arch strain, corns, neuromas, and sagging joints. Flat feet can also affect other parts of the body, causing fatigue, pain or stiffness in the ankles, knees, hips, and lower back.
While flat feet can be serious, there are a number of treatment options for sufferers, ranging from orthotics to physical therapy to surgery. The highly trained podiatric physicians and surgeons at Ankle & Foot Care Centers can examine your specific case and determine the proper course of treatment for your condition.
