While some people are born with Posterior Tibial Tendon Dysfunction (PTTD), also known as 'flat feet' is possible to develop them later on in life due to injury or improper foot support. PTTD or 'fallen arches' – is a condition where the tendon that supports the arches becomes too weak to hold them up.
Over time, a lowering of the arches occurs, causing pain and discomfort, making it increasingly difficult to find comfortable footwear.
