What Is It?
A condition in which the entire sole of the foot touches the floor when standing. This is very common with more than 3 millions cases per year. The condition can't be cured, but treatment options help.
Flat feet can occur during childhood if the arches of the feet don't develop, after an injury, or from the wear and tear of aging. Most people have no symptoms associated with flat feet. But some people with flat feet experience foot pain, particularly in the heel or arch area.
