Fallen arches can occur naturally from birth, or can be attributed to the rolling in of the foot and ankle while running (overpronation).
Fallen arches can also be the result of other conditions such as overuse, stretching or tearing of the posterior tibial tendon (which attaches to a bone in the foot and runs up the calf of the lower leg at a tension which pulls up the arch) which reduces its ability to maintain tension in the tendon.


Orthotic inserts, either prescribed or bought over the counter, can help keep the arches fixed into position, but always wear them as although they support, they don’t strengthen, which is why some experts reccomend avoiding them. Barefoot exercises, such as standing on a towel and making fists with the toes, can help to strengthen the arches.
