Flat feet is one of the most common foot conditions we see at McQuistan Chiropody. The arch of the foot collapses, whether from a congenital situation disease, obesity, or improper foot biomechanics. The foot’s arch becomes non-existent during weight bearing and the over-strained muscles and ligaments can become painful and fatigued easily.
Flat feet and the collapse of the arch can also lead to calluses and corns and ingrown toenails. It’s essential to try to prevent the development of flat feet and treat this condition as soon as possible to prevent progression and discomfort.
