A common concern with most is whether or not their foot arches have fallen or become flat. For some, it may not be so bothersome, but for many, it puts them at potential risk for many foot conditions such as heel pain, plantar fasciitis, bunions, metatarsalgia, neuromas, arthritis, and nerve entrapment. Some may be born with flat feet (congenital flat feet), and others acquire the conditions over years of wearing improper footwear, lacking sufficient arch support.
It is even possible to develop flat feet as a result of a sports injury or excessive weight gain, hence why many women develop it during pregnancy. The key to correcting and preventing issues associated with flat feet is wearing correct footwear, or custom foot orthotics at its earliest onset. By doing so, the feet can regain the strength to properly support ones arch and body, which will alleviate pain.
