FLAT FEET
WHAT IS FLAT FEET?
Flat feet is a common condition where the arches on the inside of your feet are flattened, allowing the entire soles of your feet to touch the floor when you stand up. Flatfeet can sometimes contribute to problems in your heels, ankles, knees or even lower back pain because the condition can alter the alignment of your legs.

CAUSES OF FLAT FEET?
A flat foot is normal in infants and toddlers, because the foot’s arch hasn’t yet developed. Most people’s arches develop throughout childhood, but some people never develop arches. This is a normal variation in foot type, and people without arches may or may not have problems.
