Being flat-footed means having no arch on the bottom of your foot. It can be hereditary or a side effect of disease. Not everyone experiences significant pain from this condition, but if you do, your doctor may recommend orthotics or other treatments.

Type 1 diabetes

Then there’s tarsal coalition, which affects 1 percent of the populace, according to eOrthopo...
