Flatfeet Conditions

Dr. Baravarian answers Facebook questions on the Home & Family TV show about flat feet and its treatment.

Flatfoot is a term used to describe a number of complex foot disorders, each with its own particular set of causes and symptoms. The one common thread running through these conditions is a partial or complete collapse of the arch of the foot.

 

When painful flat feet are left untreated, it usually leads to a worsening condition.

  • This very common form of flatfoot usually originates in childhood, lasts throughout adulthood and typically worsens without treatment.

  • While pediatric flat feet is a fairly common problem, it's important to have them evaluated by a specialist to avoid future complications.

  • Also known as rigid flatfoot, tarsal coalition is a condition in which the foot is permanently fixed in a flat position.
