Flat feet is a condition,where people with flat feet have a very low arch or no arch, meaning that one or both of their feet may be flat on the ground.

It is not a condition to worry because some are natural,but it can only need treatment if they cause discomfort, indicate an underlying disorder, or lead to pain elsewhere in the body. Some people appear to have a very low arch or no arch without ever experiencing problems.

It is the most common type. The arches in your feet appear only when you lift them off the ground, and your soles touch the ground fully when you place your feet on the ground.
