What are Fallen Arches?
Also known as flat feet, fallen arches refers to if the main arch found on the inside of your foot, that runs from the heel towards your big toe, has lost its arch shape.
Causes of Fallen Arches
Over time the position of the ankle bones can cause the supportive arch bone to move leading to flattening of the arch.
Some medical conditions like diabetes and connective tissue disorders e.g. rheumatoid arthritis can cause the arch structure to change.
Treatment for Fallen Arches
To prevent fallen arches you should avoid wearing high heels and invest in good quality footwear that has arch support built into the footbed, our brands such as Vionic, Strive and Skechers Arch Fit™ have a wide selection of these.
