Very few foot conditions exhibit no symptoms, but flat feet are the exception. This condition is generally not serious, and you may experience no discomfort at all. Perhaps you were just told you had flat feet, or noticed very little arch pattern when you did the water test, but you do not need to hurry off to the doctor unless pain is present.
You have the condition of flat feet if when standing the pressure causes the entire arch of your foot to disappear and the soles of your feet rest entirely on the surface of the floor. This is a common condition and it may date back to childhood when the arches in your feet never fully developed. Other causes may be from injury or perhaps even the normal stress of aging.
Sometimes flat feet can throw off the body’s alignment and cause discomfort in the ankles and knees. But again treatment is not necessary if pain is not present. If you were to experience discomfort in the heel or arch, inability to stand on tip toes or ankle swelling, you should contact Dr. Vargas for an evaluation and treatment.
If you have a child who is experiencing foot pain, check their feet, but keep in mind the arch does not fully develop until the child is 12 or 13. There are many causes of foot pain, so if the child is experiencing discomfort, don’t assume it is attributable to flat feet. Allow the doctor to make the decision. Also, babies are born with flat feet, so upon examining their feet and discovering it, don’t panic. In truth, some people’s arches never develop. This is just variance in development and it may or may not cause difficulty.
Aging can cause weakening of tendons and loss of support in the arch area. This is simply a result of years of stress. Other factors that may play a part in flat feet include:

  • Obesity
  • Injury
  • Arthritis

If you are having significant pain, it’s time to see Dr. Vargas. Call him at (281) 313-0090 or (281) 342-8700. You may be experiencing Adult Acquired Flatfoot caused by inflammation of a tendon that has been stretched or torn in which case chronic pain could develop if left untreated. Common treatment methods for this include:

  • Icing
  • Over-the-counter anti-inflammatory medication
  • Physical therapy
  • Taping or bracing
  • Orthotics
