Fallen Arches 01

What are fallen arches?

The arches of your feet are like natural shock absorbers, distributing your weight evenly and promoting proper alignment. However, these arches can weaken and flatten over time, leading to fallen arches. This can cause a domino effect, impacting your ankles, knees, and even your hips.

Choosing the right orthotics is crucial because fallen arches can lead to other foot issues like heel pain, plantar fasciitis, and overpronation (excessive inward rolling of the foot). Orthotics provide much-needed support, helping your arches regain their natural shape and function.

At Footlogics, we're committed to providing our customers with the best insoles for fallen arches designed by podiatrists to help you move freely and enjoy life pain-free.

What causes arches to fall?

Fallen arches are often caused by a combination of factors that lead to the supportive structures in the foot becoming weakened or damaged, causing the arch to collapse. For example:

  • Injury or trauma to the foot
  • Obesity or excessive weight
  • Lack of arch development in childhood
  • Weakening of the posterior tibial tendon
  • Ageing and general wear and tear over time

Do foot arches fall with age?

Foot arches tend to fall or flatten with age due to a combination of factors. As we get older, the ligaments, tendons, and muscles that support the arches naturally become weaker and less flexible, causing the arches to collapse.

Additionally, thinning fat pads on the bottoms of the feet and arthritis in the foot and ankle joints make the arches more prone to falling. The combined effects of years of standing, walking, and bearing weight on the feet slowly wear down the arches over a lifetime.

How do you fix fallen arches?

If someone is experiencing a fallen arch condition then it can be fixed. Here are some options to pursue:

  • Orthotics with arch supports is an effective solution for fallen arches. They help provide the structural support the arches are lacking.
  • Exercises to strengthen the muscles and tendons in the feet and ankles can also help restore arch height and stability. This helps reinforce the arches from within.
  • Losing excess weight is beneficial, as it reduces the amount of pressure and strain on the fallen arches.
  • Wearing supportive shoes with good arch and heel support is important to take stress off the arches.
  • Physical therapy treatments, like stretching and strengthening exercises, can also be helpful in some cases to rehabilitate the feet.

Are Fallen Arches and Flat Foot related?

Fallen arches and flat feet are closely related conditions. Flat foot, or pes planus, is a common condition characterised by the collapse or flattening of the foot's arches.

This collapse can lead to the development of fallen arches, which is the sagging or lowering of the arches. You can say that a flat foot is the underlying cause of fallen arches.
