In many adults, a low arch or a flatfoot is painless and causes no problems. However, a painful flatfoot can be a sign of a congenital abnormality or an injury to the muscles and tendons of the foot. If the condition progresses, you may experience problems with walking, climbing stairs and wearing shoes.
Doctor Jeffery from US Orthotic Center mentions that People who are not experiencing symptoms do not usually require treatment. If flat feet are causing pain, then supportive, well-fitted shoes can help in addition to custom high-quality Orthotic. Fitted insoles and orthotics custom-designed arch supports may relieve pressure on the arch and reduce pain if the feet roll too far inward.
Even if one doesn’t have extreme issues, using orthotics and custom made insoles that are perfectly designed for you, will benefit you for overall comfort.
