Are flat feet and plantar fasciitis the same thing?

Asked 2 years ago

Hi, are plantar fasciitis and fallen arches/flat feet synonymous?

Flatfeet is a structural problem of the feet in which the arches fall. Usually, most people with flatfeet have no signs or symptoms. Without management, flatfeet can lead to complications including plantar fasciitis. Contrarily, plantar fasciitis is an inflammation of the plantar fascia which causes heel pain.

No, they are not.

Flatfeet is a condition in which the foot arches collapse and may come with no associated symptoms. On the other hand, plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fascia and causes pain.

Without proper management, flatfeet increase your risk of developing plantar fasciitis.

No, they are not.

While Flatfeet is a structural condition characterized by the collapse of the foot arches, plantar fasciitis is the inflammation of the plantar fasciitis. However, both conditions are related. Flatfeet will stretch the plantar fascia and may lead to inflammation of the fascia over time.
