You’ll know if you have flatfeet when the arches on the inside of your feet are flattened, allowing the entire soles of your feet to touch the floor when you stand up. This is a common and usually painless condition and typically occurs when the arches don’t develop during childhood. Flatfeet can sometimes contribute to problems in your ankles and legs and knees because the condition can alter the alignment of your legs. If flatfeet are causing you trouble, our podiatrists at Orange CA Podiatry can provide you with relief.
Flatfeet are often a complex disorder, with diverse symptoms and varying degrees of deformity and disability. When diagnosing flatfeet, one of our podiatrists will examine your feet and observe how they look when you stand and sit. X-rays are usually taken to determine the severity of the disorder. Most people have no signs or symptoms of flatfeet, but if pain is present, it can worsen with activity.
If you have flat feet and are experiencing pain in the heel, arch, ankle, or along the outside of the foot, please give us a call.
