Flexible flatfeet are noted when the arches of the feet upon standing. The arch reappears while your child stands on their tip toes or the toes are hyperextended.
Typically, flatfeet do not cause any pain or discomfort. This condition also does not cause any disabilities or limitations in activities he or she would like to participate in. Your child should grow out of this mild deformity by the age of seven. If the child has some residual flatfeet after the age of seven, this will not impede any activities the child would like to participate in later in life. Families tend to worry needlessly since this mild deformity does not leaf to any permanent problems.
