Coloured X-ray of a womans flat foot

Flat foot. Coloured X-ray of the flat foot of a 25 year old woman. The decreased arching of the foot in this condition, also known as pes planus, means that her sole lies flat on the ground. The bones are blue and flesh is orange. The heel bone (lower left), metatarsals and tarsals are almost aligned in a straight line. Nearly all babies have flat feet, the arches only developing during childhood as the feet muscles and ligaments grow stronger.

Treatment with arch supports and exercise is only needed if the feet are painful
