Flatfoot (Fallen Arches)

Brooklyn Podiatrist | Brooklyn Flatfoot (Fallen Arches) | NY | Dr Inna Verzub - Modern Podiatry PC |

It is rare to find someone who walks with both feet in perfect alignment. Often we walk on the inside or outsides of our feet, or with our toes or heels rotated inward. These typical walking patterns can cause many problems not just with the feet but also for the whole body. One of the most common effects of improper alignment is known as flatfoot or fallen arches.

Flat feet are characterized by a lack of adequate arch height in the inner foot. It can be a genetic condition or the result of improper body mechanics. A healthy foot is structurally able to support the weight of the body thanks to the bone structure that comprises the arch. An individual with flat feet is often unable to properly support this weight. This will cause extreme pressure on the joints above, such as the ankles, knees, hips, and even the back.

If you have flat feet, you may also experience pain throughout the lower body and into the lower back. Orthotics can be prescribed to create a system of support for the body and surgery can also offer a more permanent solution. Contact us today to discuss which treatment option may be right for you.
