Flat feet is a condition that affects about 30% of Americans. It means that when they stand, the bottom of one or both of their feet is completely flat against the floor. For some people, having flat feet never bothers them. But for others, the condition causes pain and discomfort that disrupts their daily life. If this describes you or your loved one, make an appointment at Podiatry Inc. in Mentor, Ohio to find relief today.
If you experience any of the following symptoms, it could be related to having flat feet.
The reason why this condition can be painful for some people is because arches play an important role. Arches affect how we walk and how we carry our body weight. When the arches are too high or too low, it can throw the body off balance.
When you come into the Mentor, OH office, the podiatrist will examine your feet and ask a few questions. They’ll be able to recommend a personalized treatment plan to help alleviate your symptoms. Treatment might include exercises, like heel cord stretching and golf ball rolling.
The podiatrist may also recommend wearing certain kinds of shoes or insoles to fit your needs. Our innovative FootMaxx technology analyzes the way your feet move to help doctors identify what kind of footwear would be best for you. In some cases, surgery may be necessary if the low arch is due to a bone development issue.
