Flat Feet Upper East Side, NY
Get Back to a Pain-Free Life
Many people have flat feet or low arches. While this is a common foot type, over time, the lack of arch support can lead to serious foot conditions and foot and ankle pain. To treat and prevent these problems, we offer flat feet treatment in Upper East Side, NY, so that we can get you back to living a pain-free life.
Types of Flat Feet
There are two main types of flat feet - congenital and acquired. If your feet are flat, it could be due to your arches never properly forming. This is what’s referred to as congenital flat feet, and for most people with this condition, there are few or no symptoms involved. 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. If you have flat feet and experience symptoms, those may include:
- Tired or achy feet after you stand or play sports
- Foot pain
- Pain in your hips
- Pain in your lower legs
- Pain in your arches
- Pain in your ankles
Even if your flat feet aren’t currently bothering you, they can be contributing to the formation 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 foot doctor. Some 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
With early treatment, 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.
