A new study from Newsmax Health report  found that women who have flat feet have a 50% chance of suffering from low back pain.

What are Flat Feet?

Flat feet are sometimes also referred to as feet with fallen arches. When walking, people with flat feet flatten their feet more than a person with normal or high arches.

What causes Flat Feet?

  • You can be born with them
  • Normal changes as you grow
  • Loose ligaments (structures that connect one bone to another)
  • Difference in leg lengths

Am I going to have back pain because my Feet are Flat?

Not necessarily.  There are many people who have flat feet that never have any problems and do not need medical care.

When do I need to visit my Podiatrist for my Flat Feet?

If your flat feet are causing you to have back pain or any other pain, like foot, ankle, leg, or difficulty walking or running, you should seek treatment.

What can be done to treat my Flat Feet and back pain?

Orthotics can be a great option for those with flat feet and back pain.  Although they aren’t a permanent fix, they can decrease some of the extra motion that your feet are going through.  This can lead to better stability.

Using braces can also be a successful treatment, they attach to your foot and ankle giving more control for those with certain types of flat feet.

Dr. Schlam might recommend stretching exercises as another helpful treatment. In rare cases, surgery may be needed to correct the problem that is causing your flat feet.
