Flat Feet: Diagnosis and Treatment, Health Channel

Dr. Roger Saldana, Pediatric Orthopedic Surgeon with Miami Orthopedics and Sports Medicine Institute at Baptist Children’s Hospital, explains there are severe cases where the foot is just too flat or rigid, or the arch is way too high and rigid and those can cause problems.

He says flat feet is genetic. “The ligaments and the support structures are just a little looser, when you put weight on them, your arches fall to the ground.”
