Issues related to having flat feet?

Flat feet are known as feet that lack the medial longitudinal arch. This misaligns the biomechanics of the foot which can cause pain throughout the foot and leg, and even in the lower back and shoulder. This is quite common and can have no symptoms but also be a great cause of pain.

If flat feet are hindering your lifestyle then contact us today at Birmingham Podiatry Clinic for one of our specialists to assess you. We will inspect your feet and provide a tailored solution which is right for you.

If you have flat feet then you may have trouble taking part in sports activities or running etc. Therefore we want to be able to help you return your active lifestyle through our tailored treatment plans.

What is the cause of flat feet?

Genetics are a contributing factor – you may be born with flat feet but have no issues until a later age when the bones and joints become more rigid with age.

If a person incorrectly rolls and flattens their foot throughout the gait cycle, this can cause feet to flatten overtime. Other developmental and health issues can also be causative factors, for example arthritis.

What are the signs of having flat feet?

Typical examples include:

  • Loss of foot arch
  • Ankles rolling inwards
  • Bunions
  • Aching of the foot, ankle, calf, knee, thigh or other leg area
  • Aching lower back or shoulder

What does treatment involve?

Treatment can include any of the following:

  • Biomechanical and joint assessment¬†
  • Stretching programme
  • Expert advice
  • Orthotics (foot inserts)
