When it comes to wearing shoes that look good, some people are willing to endure a lot of pain. They worry more about how the shoes look than they worry about the health of their feet. If a person is suffering from fallen arches and has shoes that are not designed to support the foot properly, they are probably enduring a lot of unnecessary pain.
Fallen arches occur most commonly because of several different factors. Walking in high heels for extended periods of time, weakened muscles due to over work or aging and shoes that lack the ability to provide support for the arches are the most common reasons that people suffer from fallen arches. The symptoms of fallen arches include: discomfort and pain especially while walking. People who have fallen arches will tend to walk on the inner part of their foot and this will cause problems over an extended period of time if nothing is done to properly support the feet.
The term flat feet is used to describe people with this condition and there are plenty of people who have suffered from it over time. It is one of the reasons that is used to get out of military service and is something that is also associated with law enforcement officials. Despite the perception, fallen arches can occur to all people, regardless of their job and it is a good idea to get shoes that support the arches for anyone who spends a large portion of their day on their feet. There are insile supports that can be found to provide the needed support in many stores or custom orthotics can be made to fit a specific individual.
