Flat Footedness is not just congenital. It can also develop later as a result of rheumatic disease, excessive weight and / or wearing inappropriate shoes.
Drop Foot Deformity
Foot drop is characterized by steppage gait. While walking, people suffering the condition drag their toes along the ground or bend their knees to lift their foot higher than usual to avoid the dragging. This serves to raise the foot high enough to prevent the toe from dragging and prevents the slapping. To accommodate the toe drop, the patient may use a characteristic tiptoe walk on the opposite leg, raising the thigh excessively, as if walking upstairs, while letting the toe drop.
High arch deformities
It’s the opposite of flat foot. It is seen especially in some nerve diseases and spinal problems. The longitudinal curve of the foot is deeper. In advanced cases, finger deformities and inward rotation of the heel may also accompany the table.
