1-Step Technique for Flat feet Correction
Flatfeet, or "collapsed feet" can be present at birth or acquired during a person's growth and development. Stress from a painful flatfoot can be the root of other foot problems in later years, such as bunions and heel spurs or ankle, knee, hip and lower back pain. Most people are helped by a simple orthotic insole that's placed in their shoes, but some require surgery to fix their condition.
