Flat Feet or Fallen Arches Treatment in Melbourne

Flat feet or fallen arches is a medical condition where the foot's contact with the ground is flatter than the normal person.

The arch of the foot plays and important role in absorbing shock and preventing over-stressing of the foot muscles and bones.
