What is flat foot?
Foot & ankle specialists
In general terms, flat feet are the lack of a longitudinal arch on the sole of the foot. In general, the feet have a slight curved line that divides the front from the back, called the plantar cavity, arch or vault; individuals with flat feet do not have this arch or have it smoother. The footprints formed by the footprints of those with flat feet do not present a curvature or have a less pronounced curvature, which represents an easy condition to identify.
It is important to know that, at birth, most children have flat feet due to the presence of fat and the lack of muscle development. This state can be considered as another stage of foot development; little by little, during the first five years of life, they are getting their normal shape. In some cases, the process can last well into adolescence.
Therefore, over time we will be able to identify the presence of flat feet and if it is necessary to carry out a special treatment to correct it.
