Adult acquired flat foot is a deformity where the entire bottom of the foot, including the arch, is touching the ground. There are many causes of this abnormality such as obesity, arthritis, weakening of a tendon, injury or diabetic complications. You may feel pain while doing high impact activities such as running. The ankle will appear to be rolling inwards and also swelling can be present. In severe cases this condition can make it unbearable to even stand for long periods of time.
