What Can Be Done About Flat Feet?

What Can Be Done About Flat Feet?
Foot care specialists like Chiropodists and Podiatrists are frequently called upon to explain the differences between a normal arch foot and that of a collapsed arch or flat foot.  While some people with a flattened arch are fortunate enough to be able to live active and pain free lives, many will experience pain and discomfort that can range from mild and occasional to severe and constant.  It is by far the most common complaint that a foot specialist will be consulted about.
