Symptoms of Flat Feet
- Pain, swelling, and discomfort in the heel and arch areas of your feet.
- Feet that tire easily and become fatigued. Flat foot deformity is not efficeint and causes the muscles and ligaments to work harder.
- Pain or weakeness in the ankles. You may experience ankle sprains more frequently than most people.
- Knee, hip, and back pain that is caused by lack of foot support. The arch is critical in absorbing shock and when it is not working properly, other joints have to work harder.
