Patients with rigid flat feet
or flexible flat feet
with shortened Achilles tendon usually begin to complain of discomfort with activity in the second or third decade of life.
We carried out this study with the aim of determining the concordance between Clark's angle and the Chippaux-Smirak index, and determining the validity of Clarke's angle using the Chippaux-Smirak index as a reference for the diagnosis of flat feet
Previous literature found a significant difference in CoP course and plantar pressure distribution between individuals with normal and flat feet
during standing posture, walking and running (6-8, 10, 12, 13).
Based on these results, medical insoles used in the shoes of the people with flat feet
, Ground reaction force a change that results in pressure on the legs and upper members in physical activity is also a little change.
Aside from flat feet
, other foot conditions affecting children include intoeing, where both feet point inward when walking; knock knees, where the knees overlap if the child is instructed to stand up straight; and Hallux valgus, or the inward deviation of the big toe.
However in flat feet
subjects the foot contact area was higher for cuboid bone (12.5 [+ or -] 2.4%), and for navicular bone (19.5 [+ or -] 1.3%).
Although there is no cure for flat feet
as such, there are things your mother can do to help limit the discomfort and reduce the symptoms somewhat.
Whatever you do, don't dismiss flat feet
as "no big deal"--damage to your knees can interfere with your ability to maintain an active, independent lifestyle.
We may conclude that a) arch index is a better parameter than clinical observation in the evaluation of the deformity, b) in our experience external tibial torsion also was associated with flexible paediatric flat feet
, c) hind foot rotational mal-alignment (high talar spin) was associated with severity of collapse, d) correlation of tibial torsion and severity of flat foot was statistically more significant than FBA e) the mal-alignment makes these deformities more complex and less responsive to conservative treatment.
There is a high arched foot--it is the opposite of flat feet
. It is much less common than flat feet
and the cause may be neurological, orthopedic or neuromuscular.
However, these shoes may not provide enough stability for those with flat feet
Teachers often fall back on the traditional view that hard work is the answer for everything from flat feet
to poor turnout.
