You will walk over 115,000 miles in your lifetime so obviously foot and ankle pain can be a result but also knee and hip arthritis have been shown to be caused, at least in part, by arch problems. Runners found that long-standing injuries improved and military personnel found that they had fewer injuries in the first place when wearing orthotics. The added stress can precipitate injury including, in extreme cases, non-contact ACL tears as well as other forms of knee pain.

Some running stores have feet specialists that can create custom orthodics or recommend a good pair for you. If the arch in the foot flattens out (over-pronates) the shin bone and knee twist inward in a cork-screw motion putting stress on the hip and pelvic bones. Interestingly it seems that the mechanism causing such issues may be a weakening of the leg muscles in response to nerve endings being irritated in and around the foot itself.
Flat Feet can be effectively treated with orthotics that provide biomechanical support and help feet to function more efficiently. The customer fitted othotics sold within our practice support the arch of the foot and prevent supernation (turning inwards) or pronation (turning outwards) when walking.
