Talk with your doctor about the best treatment plan for you. Treatment options include the following:
Physical Therapy, Exercises, and Orthotics
If you have mild symptoms, certain exercises, physical therapy, and shoe inserts may relieve the discomfort. A well-fitting pair of shoes may be all that is needed. Flat feet due to nerve or muscle disease may need special braces.
For rigid flat feet, a surgical procedure can create a satisfactory arch.
