Symptoms and diagnosis of flat feet
Foot & ankle specialists
In some cases, flat feet may be asymptomatic, that is, even in the absence of the plantar cavity, the person may not feel pain or mobility difficulties. However, other cases do present symptoms, the most common being some difficulty walking and pain around the feet.
The person with flat feet can also show difficulties and limitations for the practice of physical activities and greater fatigue when they spend a lot of time standing. Other symptoms such as increased cramps, frequent falls and pain in the knees and legs, may occur in the patient with flat feet.
The podiatrist can make a correct diagnosis of flat feet through a physical examination; Through observation, she may notice that the patient's plantar arch disappears on standing, while it may reappear on tiptoe. In this way, the specialist can reliably distinguish between flexible and rigid flat feet.
