Typically ankles curve in because your arches are too low or have fallen. Without the arch in the proper position, the ankle angles inward, adding stress to the foot. Sometimes naturally flat feet don’t have any painful symptoms. Often, though, the strain on the midfoot and the ankles can bring pain along the arch and in the heel. Adult acquired flatfoot is a more serious problem. Part of the bone structure in your foot suffers damage and allows the arch to collapse. Usually you are left with discomfort along the posterior tibial tendon, the outside of the ankle joint, or in the midfoot.
If your ankles curve or angle in, have our expert staff examine your feet, even if you aren’t experiencing pain yet. This condition is easiest to treat when it is caught early.
