Fallen arches may occur with deformities of the foot bones. Tarsal coalition is a congenital condition in which the bones of the foot do not separate from one another during development in the womb. A child with tarsal coalition exhibits a rigid flat foot, which can be painful, notes the patient information website eOrthopod. Surgery may prove necessary to separate the bones. Other foot and ankle conditions that cause fallen arches may also require surgery if noninvasive treatments fail to alleviate pain and restore normal function. Do your feet cause you a lot of pain? Here are some tips to help curb those aching foot pains.

If you suspect you have, and are suffering foot care issues you may wish to see a podiatrist for treatment. Treatments are available and your podiatrist will prescribe them based on the cause of a particular case of flat feet. These treatments may include but are not limited to shoe inserts, arch supports, custom orthotics, braces, surgery or just anti inflammatory medication. Our arches are what give us the spring in our steps and distribute our body weight across our feet and legs. The arch structure determines how we walk so the arches need to be both sturdy and flexible to adjust to different surfaces as we walk.

This instability of the bone was known as hypermobility of the first metatarsal bone. This loss of stability will then cause the arch to fall, tilt or collapse inwardly because it has less support than normal in keeping the arch up. Once this collapsing starts toward the inside part of the foot, then a chain reaction begins to take place that can cause many problems of your foot, heel and ankle. The muscles of the ankle will attempt to fight off this unnatural inward titling or collapsing of the arch.

Ready made inserts cause imbalances in your foot in and of themselves. Podiatrists and Physicians know this and you owe it to yourself to see if your foot pain problem requires orthonics, which are insoles molded from a plaster cast of both feet, and are necessary for both feet even if you are having foot problems in just one foot. Orthonics are made and worn for both feet even if you have foot pain in just one foot. The reason for this is the foot without the pain, could be one of the reasons for the pain in the other foot by causing an imbalance condition among other things.

Some people are born with flat feet. Others develop fallen arches later in life due to damaged tendons, broken bones or arthritis. Obesity, diabetes, pregnancy or aging can exacerbate the condition. Without sufficient natural arch support, body weight is not evenly distributed. The ankle, knee and hip joints may be forced out of their correct positions, leading to misalignment of your lumbar spine and persistent backache. MIDTARSAL FAULT- In people whose feet have a tendency to collapse (fallen arches), there ends up being a jamming of the bones on top of your foot that will lead to pain, with or without shoes. Generally, there will be no history of trauma.

Taking action at the first signs of shin splints symptoms is the best way to speed up recovery. Proper stretching is a good way to both prevent and treat shin splints While most people stretch their calves prior to exercise, stretching your shins is also important but often neglected. The Plantar Fascia contracts and becomes tight while in rest periods such as sleeping or sitting. However during initial movement or when one suddenly gets up, the Fascia must quickly expand to the rapid application of the weight, thereby resulting in micro-tearing the ligaments and the pain for a few minutes.
