Foot Specialist for Flat Feet in Manhattan, NY
High-Quality Care for Flat Feet
It is common to have flat feet or low arches. Unfortunately, the lack of arch support in flat feet can lead to serious foot conditions and foot and ankle pain. To treat and prevent these problems, we offer flat feet treatment in Manhattan, NY, so that we can get you back to living a pain-free life.
Types of Flat Feet
There are two types of flat feet: congenital and acquired. If your feet are flat, it could be because your arches never developed properly. This condition is referred to as congenital flat feet. Most people with congenital flat feet experience few to no symptoms. For those who have fallen arches or acquired flat feet, there may be more symptoms.
Causes & Symptoms
If you have flat feet, your arch remains close to the ground because your tendons are looser than they are in someone without flat feet. Symptoms experienced in those with flat feet include:
- Foot pain
- Pain in your hips or lower legs
- Pain in your arches or ankles
- Tired or achy feet after you stand or play sports
Even if your flat feet aren’t currently bothering you, they may be contributing to the development of other painful foot conditions such as:
- Heel Spurs
- Plantar Fasciitis
If you experience foot pain on a regular basis or have any of the listed symptoms consistently, then it may be time to see a podiatrist. Common treatments for flat feet include:
- Foot and ankle stretches
- Icing painful areas
- An anti-inflammatory medicine
- Custom orthotics
- Supportive bracing or taping
- In severe cases, surgery may be required
If caught early enough, we can eliminate or at least decrease the chance of the formation of deformities. Our podiatrists will carefully discuss your case and treatment options when you visit us for an evaluation.
