TV newsreader Chris Bath when she was a young girl as a dancerAs a young girl, flat feet and knock-knees kept Chris Bath from pursuing her ambitions as a ballet dancer. Today, the South Wentworthville native is keeping her love for dance alive as the new ambassador of Form Dance Projects in Parramatta. The foundation started as a community outreach center fourteen years ago and is now looking to find a home for its 800 dancers, choreographers, and school students. Local business and creative leaders appear to have the same goals as Form as there is now a push to establish an artistic center in the city.

“I loved dancing, but was not anatomically made for it so I had no turnout, my knees always wanted to knock in and my feet were also flat,” Bath commented. “I realized at age 12 when my teacher told me, but I refused to give in. This is the great thing about Form, it’s not just dancing—there are opportunities to become involved in workshops, choreography, special artistic projects.”

Having flat feet can be very troublesome. If you’re flat feet are bothering you consult with podiatrist Dr. Mayer Salama, D.P.M.of Salama Foot Care. Dr. Salama can assist you with all of your foot and ankle concerns.

What are Flat Feet?

Flat feet are a condition in which the arch of the foot is depressed and the sole of the foot is almost completely in contact with the ground. Standing about 20-30% of the population generally has flat feet because their arch never formed during growth.

Conditions & Problems:

Having flat feet makes it difficult to run or walk because of the stress placed on the ankles.

Alignment – The general alignment of your legs can be disrupted, because the ankles move inward which can cause major discomfort.

Knees – if you have complications with your knees, flat feet can be a contributor to arthritis in that area.  

Symptoms:

  • Pain around the heel or arch area.
  • Trouble standing on the tip toe.
  • Swelling around the inside of the ankle.
  • Flat look to one or both feet.
  • Having your shoes feel uneven when worn.

(Photo Credit: KDKA)Like many teens, Jessica Onder enjoys typical high school activities. “She was on the swim team, marching band, rifle team, and did a lot of things,” says Maureen Onder about her daughter. Onder suffered from flat feet after stepping on a rock, causing her bones to turn inward.

“I thought it was something with her leg, or her knees or something, you know, bow legged. I never considered it being flat foot, ‘cause I didn't know anyone who had It.” said Maureen. Flat feet are a problem more common than you might realize according to West Penn Hospital orthopedic foot specialist Dr. Victor Prisk. “About 30 percent of people have a flat foot,” said Prisk.  

Having flat-feet can lead to complications down the road. If you think you have flat feet you should seek out the care of a podiatrist such as like Dr. Mayer Salama of Salama Foot Care.  Dr. Salama will diagnose any foot conditions you may have as well as provide you with a range of treatment options.
