It is said that even one third of population can have this kind of foot deformity. For some people it's not that painful defect. But for others its painful beyond measure. We need to walk with ease every day to successfully complete our tasks and fulfill all our needs. How scary is vision that with every step, we experience pain that stops us from such basic activity as walking and running? But we should never give up. There are accounts of older people (in their 70s) who decide to act and try to heal this defect. Sometimes with success. Younger persons should never wait so long and immediately start searching for solutions that are best for them. Because the faster we deal with flat foot problem, the greater chances we have to win a better quality of life.

Those are most commonly used supports for flat foot deformity. Shoe insoles for flat feet are very popular as using them is very simple. We just need correct shoes to keep them inside as we are walking. This will decrease pain greatly and after months and years of using them its possible that our healing process have been reduced. If we visit good clinic, doctor can help us choice right one for us by measuring our flat feet problem with special machine. With computer technology and right software calculations are made which are used later to produce personalized inserts. Its very important not to try solve our flat feet problem alone. Foot is very complicated bio mechanism. Bones, muscles and tendons are in perfect place and harmony in a healthy foot. That harmony enables correct distribution of weight and dynamic forces in a way that is harmless to our feet. That's why trained people can lift unimaginable weights or jump from higher places than normal people. It's all about proper weight and force distribution.

Foot arch support inserts or orthotics foot support braces will be used in a little different circumstance. For example shoe insoles for flat feet will often be used by younger people whose feet are still growing and because of this are much more prone to adjustment. Older people can use them too as those inserts can greatly reduce pain of walking in some cases. Braces are used in case of greater problems with flat feet. But our doctor decides what is best for us. In really difficult cases only surgery intervention will help. But as some doctors say its best to try heal this problem as early as possible. Older people sometimes (not to often unfortunately) have some success with orthopedic surgery so in fact it is never too late to act.
