The answer is “yes,” but a better question is whether you actually need flat feet treatment in the first place. If you have this particular structural issue and are not experiencing any pain or difficulties as a result, then treating flat feet is unnecessary.
In the event your fallen arches do lead to unwanted consequences, there are a variety of conservative treatment methods that may be used, including rest, stretches, icing, and medication. Physical therapy is another option that can help the condition. Orthotic devices, customized for your unique feet, can help to provide structure and redistribute the forces that come with running or walking.
While not especially common, severe cases can be treated with surgery. There are various procedures and we will discuss them thoroughly so you can make the best possible decision.
