Flat feet


This is a common condition where there is collapse of the normal arch of the foot. It occurs in 30% of the population and usually causes no symptoms. It is more common in older women.


Occasionally it can be painful and there may be swelling on the inside of the ankle.


Sometimes, X-rays and an MRI scan are used to plan surgery.


In most cases supportive insoles relieve the discomfort. Surgery is reserved for severe cases.
