It is estimated that around 20%-30% of the general population have flat feet. Most people are born with flat feet due to a genetic deposition, however there are other reasons why some may develop this condition. The most common cause of flat feet besides genetics is usually due to the weakening of the arch structure that can be triggered by old age, trauma to the foot or obesity weakening the supporting foot muscles and the plantar fascia which makes up the arch of the foot.
The majority of people with flat feet do not suffer with any problems with their feet, however that being said having flat feet does increase your chances of developing foot pain and injuries. This is because having flat feet can make you more prone to bio-mechanical imbalances and improper foot function that can lead to excessive strain and pressure on the ligaments, tendons and bones found in your feet.
One of the most common bio-mechanical imbalances linked to having flat feet is over pronation which is when the foot rolls inward an excessive amount whilst walking. Overpronation of the foot can cause extra strain on the arch and plantar fascia of the foot which can cause it to become overused and inflamed more easily. When the plantar fascia becomes inflamed it is referred to as plantar fasciitis. Plantar fasciitis can be a very painful and debilitating injury that can leave you in unable to bare weight properly on the affected foot. If left untreated plantar fasciitis usually gets worse as the damage to the plantar fascia cannot heal properly and worsens which can lead to it becoming chronic.
Plantar fasciitis isn’t the only injury that can be linked to having flat feet. Flat feet can also contribute to other problems developing not just in your feet but also other parts of your body including your legs, hips and lower back. This is because our feet are the supporting foundations of our entire skeletal system and when there is an imbalance in our feet these problems can affect our posture and cause problems throughout our entire problems.
