Flat feet can occur during childhood if the arches of the feet don't develop, after an injury, or from the wear and tear of aging.

Most people have no symptoms associated with flat feet. But some people with flat feet experience foot pain, particularly in the heel or arch area.

For painful flat feet, treatments include arch supports for the shoes, stretching, or a structurally supportive shoe.

A condition in which the entire sole of the foot touches the floor when standing.
