Flat foot

Detailed Answer:
Hi there

Thanks for the query

It's possible that you may be having flat foot.

It is quite common especially when you have to stand out walk a lot during the day.

Use medial silicone foot wedge in your footwear. You can get it at a Pharmacy. Perform foot and arch stretching exercises at a Physiotherapist's. Use Orthopaedic footwear too.

Get your Vitamin D levels tested.

I hope I have answered your query.

I will be available to answer your follow up queries.

Regards,

Dr.Aashish Raghu
