FOOT ARCH DISORDERS
WHAT IS ARCH DISORDER?
An arch disorder can occur due to a foot deformity and may be present from birth. It would become a problem as the child gets older.
This include problems like High Arches (abnormal high arch of the foot), Flat Feet (little to no arch of the foot), and Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (changes in the posterior tibial tendon).
Arch disorders could be caused by injury and trauma that may affect the structure of the feet, causing arch pain, like bone fractures, ligament and tendon tears, nerve tears, or plantar fasciitis.
Arch disorders could be caused by lifestyle, illnesses and habits such as obesity, playing high intensity sports, age, and illnesses like RA and diabetes.
