Treatment Options For Flat Feet

Physical Therapy And Stretching

Many doctors will recommend physical therapy to help ease the pain caused by flat feet. The physical therapist will go through the patient's symptoms, ask about their pain level, and determine what exercises will be best. A physical therapist will help patients do exercises during each session to make sure they are performing them properly. Additionally, the therapist can analyze the way the patient walks or runs, so they get an accurate picture of their problems and needs. The therapist also provides patients with more stretching exercises they can do at home. Listening to the therapist, attending appointments as scheduled, and doing exercises daily can help relieve some of the discomfort. Doing this will help patients keep their muscles stretched, especially the Achilles tendon, which individuals with flat feet sometimes suffer from. Physical therapy and stretching can help with the pain in many different parts of the body that might be caused by flat feet.
