What are Flat Feet?

Flat feet develop when the arches of the foot fail to develop in childhood. This causes the bottom of the foot to look almost entirely flat rather than curving inward. Flat feet can also develop due to injury or age, as in the case of posterior tibial tendonitis, although these cases are less common. Risk factors for developing flat feet include obesity, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, and old age. Some arches on the feet are flexible and can be outgrown during childhood. In cases where arches are flexible, a flat foot may be visible depending on the position in which the child is sitting or standing.

Symptoms of Flat Feet

It is rare for flat feet to have any noticeable symptoms. In some cases, minor symptoms are reported, including:

  • Swelling
  • Redness
  • Pain in the heel or arch
  • Increased risk of injury

Diagnosing Flat Feet

When diagnosing flat feet, there are a number of tests doctors can use. These may include X-ray, CT scans, ultrasound, and MRIs. These work to provide imaging for the structure of the foot. They may also help determine the difference between an abnormally small arch and flat feet.

Treating Flat Feet

Flat feet are rarely in need of treatment. In cases where flat feet cause pain or other bodily damage, symptoms can often be reduced by over-the-counter pain killers. Should those fail to work, many have found relief by getting off their feet for a few hours or losing weight to reduce the pressure. A popular treatment for the long-term treatment of flat feet is to use arch supports. These can be custom made or sold over-the-counter.
