All You Need to Know About Flat Feet Treatment
When you walk over a flat walkway with wet feet, notice the imprint, if it is a complete print of the bottom of your foot –you have flat feet.
What are Flat Feet?
Flat feet refer to the shape of the foot having an upward curve in the middle of the foot forming an arch which is lower than the normal ones. This condition is also known as fallen arches.
It is not only about the shape of feet -numerous tendons connecting your lower leg and foot, work together to form an arch in your foot. When these tendons together pull the proper amount, then your foot crafts a moderate or normal arch. On the other hand when these tendons do not pull together appropriately, your foot crafts a little or no arch. People who have fallen arches often need a flat feet therapy.
