Do you have flatfeet?

causes and effects of flatfeetA normal human foot has a gap, or arch, on the underside that naturally forms during the early years of childhood. For some people, that arch never develops or it loosens over time, resulting in flatfeet or fallen arches.

The foot’s arch plays a role in how you walk. If the arch is flat or too low to the ground, this can strain certain muscles, tendons, and joints in the feet and legs. It can cause overpronation when you walk or run. Most frequently, it puts strain on the ankles that are forced to turn inward as you step.
