There are so many reasons for foot pain some of which have been discussed, but one may be the collapse of arches as the patient ages. Collapsed arches can arise from a fall, bunions, incorrect shoes and medical ailments. It is important to try to get the original reason for the collapse diagnosed in order to be able to reverse the procedure.
Being flatfooted is not a reason to get orthotics, pain from fallen arches may however be relieved by inserting orthotics or arch supports into appropriate shoes. Wearing comfortable supportive shoes and using stretching and strengthening techniques will also help.
