Flat Foot36 year old Chilhwan Kim of West Harbour, New Zealand is afflicted with flat feet. As a result, Kim deals with excessive pain when walking or standing for long periods of time.

As he completes a Master’s degree in osteopathy, Kim searches for answers and through research hoping to find a solution to flat feet. “The primary treatment options for flat feet are limited to wearing corrective shoes, but there is manual therapy and exercise available for long term improvement,” Kim believes there is no long-term solution. “In our treatment we use balance ligament tension which is related to balancing out ligament problems. I was thinking that treatment could help more long-term,” he said.

Having flat-feet can lead to complications down the road. If you think you have flat feet you should seek out the care of a podiatrist such as Dr. Henry Slomowitz of New Jersey. Dr. Slomowitz will diagnose any foot conditions you may have as well as provide you with a range of treatment options.

What are Flat Feet?

Conditions & Problems:

Having flat feet makes it difficult to run or walk because of the stress placed on the ankles.
Alignment – The general alignment of your legs can be disrupted, because the ankles move inward which can cause major discomfort.
Knees – if you have complications with your knees, flat feet can be a contributor to arthritis in that area.  

Symptoms:

  • Pain around the heel or arch area.
  • Trouble standing on the tip toe.
  • Swelling around the inside of the ankle.
  • Flat look to one or both feet.
  • Having your shoes feel uneven when worn.
