Our Doreen & Reservoir Podiatrists are expertly-trained in dealing with a wide-range of flat feet causes and symptoms. They will help devise a flat feet treatment plan unique to your personal needs.
A flat foot also known as fallen arches is a condition which allows the entire soles of your feet to touch the floor when you stand up. At Muscle Joint Bone Podiatry Clinic we combine multiple podiatry modalities to treat your feet.
While Flat feet are common and often painless, they can present a number of issues affecting your everyday life. Flatfeet can occur when the arches don’t develop during childhood. In other cases, flatfeet develop after an injury or from the simple wear-and-tear stresses of age.
Flat feet most commonly contribute to problems with knees, ankles, hips and lower back and can affect all these areas in terms of alignment and imbalances. Flat feet can place great stress on the medial side of the ankle leading to a susceptibility to eversion ankle sprains.
Flat feet symptoms will be fairly easy to diagnose, you may even be able to make an early guess that you have flat feet by looking in the mirror. You will notice in feet where an arch is present that there will be a discernible difference.
Often however, people will not experience any pain or discomfort and can live uninhibited for many years.
