Flat Feet and Normal Feet

Flat feet have a great impact on life. It is recommended to actively correct flat feet through exercise to reduce their impact on life. Take the effect of flat feet on running as an example.

Running with flat feet is prone to injury, usually due to the collapse of the inner arch of the flat foot, increased pressure on the outer side, and excessive pressure of the ankle. This situation will cause the calf tibia to rotate, increase the pressure on the ankle, change the bio-mechanical structure of the knee joint, and increase the chance of ankle sprain and knee joint injury.

At the same time, due to the collapse of the arch of the foot, the impact force from the sole to the forefoot will be greater during long-distance running, and plantar fasciitis is prone to occur.

What is Flexible Flatfoot

Flexible flatfoot is one of the most common types of flatfoot. It typically begins in childhood or adolescence and continues into adulthood. It usually occurs in both feet and progresses in severity throughout the adult years. As the deformity worsens, the soft tissues (tendons and ligaments) of the arch may stretch or tear and can become inflamed. The term “flexible” means that while the foot is flat when standing (weightbearing), the arch returns when not standing.
