Flat foot is a condition where the longitudinal arch or
instep of the foot collapses and comes in contact with the ground. In infants
and toddlers, the longitudinal arch is not developed and flat feet are normal.
In some individuals, the longitudinal arch never develops.
Flat feet may be associated with pronation, a leaning
inward of the ankle bones toward the center line.
Some common symptoms of a flat foot are:
- A flat look to one
or both of your feet
- Uneven shoe wear
and collapse of your shoe toward the inside of your flat foot
- Lower leg pain
- Pain on the inside
of your ankle
- Swelling along the
inside of your ankle
- Foot pain
