People with flat feet or pes planus have arches on the inside of their feet that are lowered or flattened out, causing the entire soles of their feet to touch the ground when standing.

Often you may come across people with flat feet who do not face any problems and need no treatment. However, some may get tired or aching feet after prolonged periods of standing or walking.
