Improve Your Mobility & Eliminate Flat Foot Pain with Silverstone Podiatry

new york ny foot specialist flat feetNew York, NY, foot specialist Dr. Nick has helped hundreds of patients suffering from flat feet. If you or a loved one struggles with this condition, we offer both non-surgical and surgical treatment options to improve the appearance and function of your feet.

What Are Flat Feet?

If you have flat feet, that means the inner arch of your foot has fallen, and your foot lies flat against the ground. There are two types of flat feet: congenital and acquired.

If your feet are congenitally flat, that means your arches never formed properly. For most people with this condition, there are few or no noticeable symptoms. For those who have fallen arches or acquired flat feet, however, there may be many more symptoms, and over time you can be at higher risk for other complications.

What Kind of Complications Happen with Flat Feet?

When your feet are flat, that affects the way you carry your weight when you stand, walk, or run. Over time, this can cause other problems or further exacerbate existing issues, such as the following…

What Are the Symptoms of Flat Feet?

Flat foot symptoms can vary significantly from person to person, but the following are some common issues that patients with flat feet may experience…

  • Painful feet
  • Inner ankle swelling & pain
  • Pain in other areas, including your calf, knee, hip, and lower back
  • Feet feel stiff, rigid, or unwieldy
  • Shoes wear out unevenly

Does Your Child Have Flat Feet?

It’s important to remember that many infants and children appear to have flat feet initially, because their arches are still developing. Flat feet can be asymptomatic, meaning the patient exhibits no symptoms. In symptomatic flat feet, the patient may experience:

  • Pain that limits their activity
  • Leg cramps
  • Tenderness in the leg, foot, or knee
  • Heels that roll outward
  • A change in their gait (how they walk)
  • Difficulty finding shoes that fit well and/or are comfortable

If you are concerned that your child suffers from flat feet due to incorrect bone development or another condition, however, our Silverstone Podiatry team would be happy to evaluate your child’s gait to put your mind at ease.
