Flat feet tied to knee pain in older adults
Older adults with "flat feet" may be more likely than those with higher arches to have chronic knee pain, a new study suggests. Researchers say the findings raise the possibility that flat feet sometimes contribute to knee osteoarthritis - the common "wear-and-tear" form of arthritis in which the cartilage cushioning the joint breaks down. If that's the case, they say, it could open up new ways to lower some older adults' risk of the painful knee condition.
