Flat feet. Causes of development. Prevention of flat feet
If they flatten out and get flatform, the shaking during walking is eliminated due to the damping properties of the spine and the joints of the legs. In connection with the fact that these elements of the skeleton are not designed to perform such tasks, they quickly fail. Thus, along with flat feet, a person acquires scoliosis and arthrosis. It should be noted that the irregular structure of arches is typical for a fairly large number of people.

Completely eliminate the pathology can only in childhood. This requires timely prevention of flat feet.
