What Causes Flat Feet?

Having flat feet is a very common condition. Sometimes it’s caused because the arch of the foot did not develop in childhood, in which case, it’s often called flexible flatfoot, and it’s usually not painful. However, if you are an active person or are just on your feet a lot, it’s important to wear the right shoes for flat feet in order to have proper support and prevent injuries. In adulthood, if you begin to develop flat feet, this is known as having fallen arches and can be caused by regular wear-and-tear or other factors such as weight gain, pregnancy, injury, diabetes, or arthritis.

Next Steps

Even if having flat feet doesn’t cause any pain, it leaves you open to injury, especially if you are an active person, since people with flat feet tend to pronate, which means that the foot collapses inward each time they take a step. Here are some steps you can take to prevent injury and reduce pain if you have flatfoot: 

Wear Properly Fitting Shoes For Flat Feet

Stability running shoes often have features that prevent pronation as well as lots of cushioning.  

Stretch

Some people have fallen arches due to a shortened Achilles tendon, so stretching can be very helpful.

Do Exercises For Flat Feet

Many people don’t realize this, but there are a lot of tiny muscles in your feet, and exercising them can help prevent injuries. Try doing exercises like heal raises, toe lifts, or picking up a towel with your feet. 

Buy Arch Support Insoles For Flat Feet

Sometimes you can swap the factory insoles of your shoes for arch support inserts in casual shoes.
