You should seek advice from your foot doctor or podiatrist to find out whether non-surgical treatments such as orthotics (custom inserts in the shoes) would help in alleviating the pain. Most cases of fallen arches are painless and cause no problem at all. There are exceptions, especially in children, who can suffer severe pain due to flat feet. Most of the time treatment does not involve invasive surgery. When these methods don’t work, surgery may be the only option to relieve pain and may improve foot function and offer pain relief in people suffering from this condition.
