Arches on the floor? Footprints like pancakes? Sounds like flat feet.
Whether caused by a congenital situation or the result of excessive exercise or obesity, the foot’s arch is not functioning because of weak muscles and ligaments in the arch area and the result is pain and fatigue. Modern shoes produced for the normal foot, lack support. Flat feet as an underlying issue often contribute to overuse syndromes such as plantar fasciits, neuromas, metatarsalgia and tendinitis. Orthotics may be recommended. Orthotics stabilize the overall bony and joint structure, therefore eliminating the extra stress on the muscles, tendons, fascia's and ligaments that cause pain.
