arch” occurs when the arch of the foot collapses, with the entire sole of the
foot coming into complete or near-complete contact with the ground. An
estimated 20%-30% of Americans have this condition where the arch never
develops, or collapses in one or both feet.

injury, illness, unusual or prolonged stress to the foot, faulty biomechanics,
