Flat feet is a common condition in Australian population where the foot lacks a normal arch, which causes the entire arch to flatten and touch the ground. Affecting many people, flat feet can be hereditary or may simply develop as a normal arch “falls” over the course of a person’s lifetime. Usually, some people with flat feet may go there whole life with no foot problems. Most can develop a flexible flat feet (over-pronation). Over-pronation means the foot and ankle tend to roll inwards and the arch collapses with weight-bearing during the entire walking cycle. This is a quite a destructive position for the foot to function in and may cause a wide variety of foot, leg and lower back conditions.
People with flat feet often notice that their feet tire quickly. Some people with flat feet experience pain in the arches or heels, while others may experience ankle, knee and back pain as a result of the skeletal misalignment that often occurs when the foot flattens.
