If you are not having any pain, no treatment is typically needed. However, this condition can put strain on the ankles and knees. These joints can turn inward and become swollen due to the flattened foot, and a tendon could be strained or torn. Treatment options include orthotics (link), stretching exercises, or rarely – surgery to repair a torn tendon.
