Treatment options for falling arches listed for you ma'am
Hello ma'am and welcome.
Thank you for writing to us.
I have gone through your query with diligence and would like you to know that I am here to help. I can understand how the orthotics is not relieving your symptoms, this is because the orthotics are are only to help relieve your symptoms and but to help to prevent progression.
I would like to list all the available treatment options for falling arches, and they are:
+Orthopedic shoes, braces or cast
+Ice application to the foot
+Osteotomy: To change the shape of the bone
+Arthrodesis: Fusion of bones to help relieve the condition permanently
+Adding tendons to the region to help provide good balance
+Non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications can help relieve temporary swelling and pain
Please speak to your doctor about the above listed options and choose the most feasible one. I hope you find my response both helpful and informative. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications, I am always here to help.
There are exercises but they are to do with another department ma'am
Hello once again ma'am.
The exercises are mainly associated with a department called physiotherapy, and have to initially be conducted by a physic therapist. They are difficult to explain verbally and also need to be conducted by a specialist at first, or you can strain your arches. So I would strongly recommend you not to try anything on your own and visit a physiotherapist.
Best wishes ma'am. :)
